Oh I'm sure what I wrote can be picked apart :)
I don't know how these things actually work on a code level, but after 
reading a link from Matt's blog about MT / comment flooding and server 
stuff, I just wondered what would happen if a wp blog protected by any 
current plugin was hit with several hundred comments in a short space of 
time - even ones that would not trigger an anti-spam feature if the IP 
was varied and the content was normal.
I was thinking out loud, hence my not posting this directly to the link 
you just gave.

I'll be quiet now :)
