Randy was the one who said routers would fall over, yet routers haven't
fallen over because of the abuse evident in Tony Bates' CIDR report.
Traded one for one, I don't see a problem.  

Mr. Bates states "This lists the "Top 30" players who if they decided to
aggregate their announced classful prefixes at the origin AS level could
make a significant difference in the reduction of the current size of the
Internet routing table. This calculation does not take into account the
inclusion of holes when forming an aggregate so it is possible even larger
reduction should be possible."

Today's data indicates 2,791 router slots could be made available to
Harvard, priori.net, Internet Texoma, et al.

Here's today's data as published at

Firms are being damaged this month by the status quo.

Go ahead, Gordon.  I'm waiting on your "compelling reason(s)".
