The 50K number is the number of nodes (names), not the number of records. 
There can be multiple records with either the same or different types in 
each node.

That seems realistic, given the number of objects needed to represent that 
much data.

Are you suggesting simply making CacheMap public, and making the data 
field accessible?  I don't think data should be public, but adding 
accessor methods would be ok.
