It seems I didn't read correctly and thus gave an unclear answer. The
problem I was talking about was the compile-time.
So, if you allow, 2nd try:

The favor_compile_time policy will still fold all the transitions
inside a big mpl::vector, at least for the moment.
I already started a new version of the policy improving this too but
didn't finish it yet as the problem I was trying to improve (Jeff
Flinn's exploding compile-time) went away so there was not a big
demand for it.

So, again, yes, the policy still makes one big vector, but it's not so
much of a problem any more because the compile-times are greatly
reduced by the policy. So, increasing the mpl::vector size does not
hurt so much any more.
Sorry for the confusion.
