Do you actually believe that this will result in a marked increase
in the number of routes. Indeed, I'll throw out a number, do you
think this proposal has the potention to cause even 10% growth in
the routing table?
Most of the people who want this today have space from an upstream
they are advertising to a second upstream. That is, the route is
already there. There will be some new people who get space under
this proposal who never had space (routed) before, but with a 120,000
entry routing table that would need to be 12,000 people requesting
new space to generate a 10% bump.
ARIN's current rate is 214 requests per month, in the busiest month,
that's 2568 per year. To reach even the 12,000 number you'd have
to have over a 450% increase. Frankly, with ARIN's current staff
I doubt they could complete enough requests to cause an issue to
the routing table in a year without adding staff. That alone would
be a safeguard.
The routing table danger here has been grossly blown out of proportion.
