Tch.  A little remodeling, some interior walls or just a cubicle farm, and
there's office space without increased tax assessment.

(And agreed re: the YouTube scenario being unrealistic for only having one
customer at a time.  Not to mention, to many customers there's a network
effect: the total value to customers can be more than N times if N
customers are in at once.  Granted, for some customers there's an
anti-network effect - less than N times as valuable - but these are a small
enough minority with a small enough negative that the average balances in
favor of "many at once".)
