You can't say what there "will be", you can only say what he's claimed there will be. How, if there's going to be a persistent master server, will they deal with personal servers? How will they deal with modded servers? If I play on a personal modded server and give myself all the best items in the game, how will the master server handle me then trying to jump into a PvP game?
This is one of those cases where it sounds like he's thought totally in best-case scenarios and hasn't at all considered the potential for exploitation of the system. And that exploitation is guarunteed to come.
