[iRail] Raildar - heavy API use

I'm writing some code to add the SNCB/NMBS to http://www.raildar.fr/
It's nearly working but the only obstacle now is that i don't want to hit your API (http://data.irail.be) too hard.
I'm querying the SNCB  directly every 15 sec (same as the web client  so no problem) to know if a train has arrived in a station but i also need to know the departure and arrival times (+ both delays) and for that i would like to use the vehicle API . The problem is that i might have to query every train every minute (200 trains makes nearly 300k requests per day).
Is this to much for you ?
Is there maybe a way to get data for all current trains in one query ?
PS : I don't see a licence on the data, is it normal ?
