the optimal value of the ring_creation_size

I am wondering what's the best value for ring_creation_size, the default is
64. According to the docs 64 will work for a cluster of no more than 6
nodes (64 /10), and ring_creation_size of 128 will allow cluster of up to
12 mode.  I am wondering what kind of overhead of is associated with a
large ring_creation_size.  Since changing the ring_creation_size will
result in rebuilding the cluster(destuctive), would a larger value make
more sense and allow scaling by adding more nodes?
