Protecting the Network Against Flood Attack

Why don't we increase the block size to 20Mb immediately? This is a rhetorical question.

People know in the subconscious level that if a block of this size is mined right now, it must be a flood attack. Then, the network is kept below its full potential as a kind of protection against flood attacks. The model would allow we increase the block size more quickly.
