I know I'm getting in on this conversation late, but here is my fantasy:

nodes=X gives X number of cpus. Packed. Your job is CPU bound and you don't
care how they are packed.

nodes=X:ppn=Y gives you X unique nodes with Y cpus per machine. Not-packed.
This lets you spread IO around because you know you need it.
