I do not currently have the resources for 700+ VMs with a Tor
instance each. I can can fire up some 10, and rotate them
through the address space. What is the minimum useful time
for a Tor node? Hours, days? I don't want to hurt the Tor
network through pointless churn through address space but to help it.

I've received below suggestion. Does it make sense/
will it break anything with Tor?

Tor will bind to one inside address hung on a firewall leg. Portforward ingress traffic hitting the entire public range to the inside   
+ToR host and pool nat egress traffic.                                                                                                  
No guarantee that it'll work. But it should generate traffic over the entire assigned block.
