1. Give us a maximum number of multihomers.
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.
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.
SUP720-3BXL says 1M (500K v6) now, doesn't seem too much of a stretch
to 4M over many years
