On the contrary, even if a particular flow is sparse, the relevant quantum calculation should involve the number of *bulk* flows attached to the same host.  Though there is possibly an argument for making it the *sum* of the sparse and bulk flows, making it just the sparse ones is wrong.

I need to think about this a bit more.  But meanwhile, try it with the sum.
