It may also be the concerted effort of certain individuals who have been

to those ASes since Jan 1 and have gotten, in general, a positive response
and many have fixed their systems.
I'd imagine that efforts to clean up the table would result in step
function changes, rather than the abrupt stop to the increase we have been
seeing. It's a little different from 1994 when we all had to CIDRise "or
die"... (I'll look at it a bit more closely - the daily delta should point
to whether it is a cleanup, or economic slowdown...)
If you look at the graphs though, the routing table growth stopped around
the end of the year. I've seen 101k prefixes give or take a few hundred
in my view since 31st December.... Also, the number of /24s being
announced has stopped growing. It's been 58k5 for the last 3 months...
Routing table growth is following the state of the Internet economies?
Looks like it to me.
