	assuming facts not in evidence.  check out Eugene Spafford or Rod VanMeters
analysis of the effects of the end of Moores Law within the decade(2020).  Or are you making
a prediction on the state of routing protocols in the next half-century?  Could be you
are betting on full up quantum computing being a commercially viable tool in that timeframe.

quite frankly i find the idea of a routing table fully populated w/ /32's daunting.
regarding the existance of /32's in the routing table today, yeah, I see them.
