Sure it does. The question is: "How far does it scale?" Nothing scales to infinity, and very, very few things do not scale past the degenerate case of 1.Throwing ethernet cables over the ceiling does not scale.
If you s/ethernet cables/optical fibers/, it scales even further. Especially since this is not being used for all his traffic.
Not everyone needs a terabit of exit capacity. Guaranteeing everything you do is close to infinitely scalable is a Bad Idea for people who do not.
And even if you do need a terabit of exit capacity, nothing wrong with the occasional OC768 routed through the ceiling. :)
