Giving each entity who wants to multihome an AS of their own and own address block, doesn't scale. Think this in the way of each home in the world being multihomed, it just doesn't scale.

We disagree. And your hyperbole doesn't come close to proving your argument.
Well then, why don't you do the following:

1. Give us a maximum number of multihomers.
2. Tell us how a routing table of that size (assuming 1 route per AS) will scale based on reasonable extrapolations of today's technology.
