Sure, but this isn't an issue if you have multi-node cluster as the
other servers will never recon at the same time, hence the requirement
for hkps.

Running a server in the pool is no longer
a hobby project, and you have to constantly be restarting or
reconfiguring your server to keep it running.

Not that much, but you need at least 8 GiB of RAM allocated for each
node and sufficient swap or recon will often get OOM-killed.

The word “cluster” there is the “problem” for hobby setups: we now have to source at least 2x 8GB RAM VMs, where the previous single 2-4GB VMs were sufficient to keep going
