It seems that it would be in the businesses favor to split their stock enough so that they could give 'more' options.

It's easy to see how this works. Employee doesn't want to go home and tell her spouse they offered her 500 options. 25000 makes a much better story.

Correct. I should have add the only caveat is make certain that the company does not end up with 100 million shares of stock after one round.
