Tell me why your RS needs to be that large?  (> 8 GB. )

I think the answer is that it depends. Especially when you start to add in coprocessors.
I'm not saying that there are not legitimate reasons, but that a lot of time, people just up the heap size without thinking about the problem.
To Kevin's point, when you exceed a certain point, you're going to need to really start to think about the tuning process.

MSLABs is now on by default or so I am told.

-Just because you can do something doesn't mean its a good idea. ;-)
