I'm with Jeb and Manga- and they said it better than I can. @Ember- that sort of thing doesn't really make sense as a red herring. @Embala- I think Sunstream did it deliberately. He was fully aware of how tall he was going to be when he got out of that cocoon. He sent his measurements to Moonshade! I don't think the Palace just did it to him randomly. But I guess we may never know for sure.
