@Dean As Isaac Asimov said, the most exciting phrase in science is not "Eureka!" but "that's odd...". These power law distributions are certainly odd, because they violate all advice about how to design but they keep emerging in all sorts of strange places (I've been studying them since Hayden Smith showed them on a poster at OOPSLA). Once we know they are there, we can begin to study why and what we can do to raise the slope of the power law line so there are relatively more simple things and the complexity (or whatever) of the most complex is much lower.
