If > 65k members is legitimate then feel free to change Osmosis. I only
picked smaller data types to save some memory when doing things like large
sorts. If the API allows it then perhaps Osmosis should too.
Another one that will have to be changed eventually is entity ids. They'll
only allow up to 2^31 currently (signed integer) which will probably break
eventually given the rapid growth of the database.
