That's a lot indeed.  If you use metadata nodes à la XEP-0084¹, those
500 items will at least remain small in size (i.e., somewhat similar to
the 500 presence stanzas that you'll usually receive anyway).  I don't
see a better solution that doesn't involve a non-trivial ejabberd patch.

I hope you're using roster versioning², BTW? :-)
