Here is the response from the hoster regarding my claim that the number of tables is a mip (meaningless indicator of performance)

MySQL performance on the server is not solely tied to transactions, and this is not a MIP. Our R&D department has shown time, and time again with extensive research on the issue that performance and server stability drastically improves when accounts are under 1000 tables. The affects of the limit are not just seen with the speed/performance of MySQL transactions, but it also has affects on server IO and CPU usage.
