The proxies would at least simplify core OS stuff (i.e. whatever's
shared amongst all the machines, such as kernel patches), but if you
have a dozen machines each doing a dozen different things (e.g. one's
running bind, another's running apache, yet another's running postfix,
etc.) then each of those servers would tend to always have "cache
misses" when you're updating the server-specific stuff.
