Heirarchical aggregation is more a secondary goal.  Routability is very
important.  Using current technology, aggregation is vital to achieving
this, but I can foresee changes that would make aggregation less important
or even irrelevant. 

But routability should remain an essential principle.

Absolutely, especially in IPv6, where we can still do something about it.
(RFC1918 was and is necessary for IPv4, but really is a bandaid.)

I would define Stewardship as the balancing of competing and often
conflicting aims to acheive the maximum benefit for the community overall.
So, yes.
