At first "full BGP table" isn't the largest one in the world. I have seen
routers which have more than million routes in the table, providers can
do funny things in their AS's ;).
Heh. I love those route-distinguishers :-)
And about many-many routes in 31-cpu machine ... depends what benefits
would be. I can easily think^Wdream about configs where I'd love to. But
yes, I don't see much benefit from all of them having _one_ large routing
table. Much more I'd love to see them having different tables - thinking
about virtual routers (and multiple routing tables in them).
I share your vision about virtual/logical routers.
