Why does it cost so much for a node runner to unstake from their validator's owner wallet?

When unstaking from the validator’s owner wallet, the transaction fees can be much higher (up to 45 XRD or more) compared to normal unstaking (0.7 XRD).


The owner wallet generates a large number of substates due to how validator fee distribution is currently done in Alexandria. The more substates involved, the larger the transaction blob, and the higher the fees.
