Most systems I use have little difficulty with 1000s of open connections,
as long as most are idle and the window sizes are chosen appropriately. 
Keeping connections alive beyond the 100 seconds may not immediately give 
a better hit-rate for trace loads- however if caching with active 
invalidation is used, having connections open makes it much easier to 
keep things up to date.
