The principle of routability guarantees that Internet number resources
are managed in such a manner that they may be routed on the Internet in
a scalable manner.
Routability is maintained by ensuring that growth from unique
non-aggregatable allocations or assignments does not exceed the growth
in the capabilities of currently available technologies, over time and
at particular point in time.
Routability is concerned with the Internet as a whole, and provides no
guarantee any individual allocation or assignment is entitled to or will
be routed on the Internet.
