1. Give us a maximum number of multihomers.

4 Million
So how do you know it's 4 million and not 4.1?

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.

SUP720-3BXL says 1M (500K v6) now, doesn't seem too much of a stretch
to 4M over many years
We know that 125k works today (I'm being a bit conservative because in IPv6 the addresses are longer) so the storage requirements should sort themselves out according to Moore in 7 x 1.5 years, so that would work in 2013. Processing scales non-linearly, though.
