Color me a skeptic, but talking about id's in a network that somehow
dont impact the routing table somewhere, sounds like describing water
that isnt wet.

Even if it does exist, nobody wants to drink it.

And if it does impact the table, its either upstream dependent or
upstream independent.

If its upstream independent its either end nodes tables only, or its all
tables equally.

As I see it, hierarchical routing tables and transition to routing
schemes other than hop-by-hop routing are required for massive scale
upstream independent routing that exceeds affordable capacity for full
tables everywhere hop-by-hop routing.
