We have many blogs on wordpress.com with hundreds of pages. I think a
handful are over a thousand. Yes, people are crazy.
We need something in core WP to make Manage->Pages (and categories)
more efficient. Requesting the top-level pages, paging those, and
AJAX loading children on request seems a viable approach. Another
suggestion is to focus management around search since someone with so
many pages probably wouldn't be able to manage them even with paged
output and demand loading of children.
