If ISP's care to route them, then there's obviously room to carry.

Full agreement there...  kc calls for more modeling of outcomes
and I agreed.   We've got some modeling of status quo in the
RAWS and IRTF RRG work, so at least there's some reality basis
for extrapolation under current policies.   Now, if we want to talk
about smoke, where's all of the modeling from the open market
folks regarding consequences to the routing table?
