There is another factor also. ASes have now been implicitly adopted
as a pricing factor for interconnection, in a way that could
contribute to inflated demand for ASNs relative to the current demand
drivers/trend. To the extent that ASN proliferation correlates with
routing table bloat, and there are no new countervailing factors, we
could be facing a new routing table growth dynamic altogether.
