Maybe it's time to find a different way to route.
If you know of a better way than BGP, feel free to suggest it, Make sure you
do at least some back-of-envelope checks that it Does The Right Thing when
a single burp on one link of a multihomed site causes the withdrawal and
re-announcement of 50K routes. And that the Right Thing happens when
a link outage happens 4-5 hops upstream...
While you're designing, remember that the routing table would be a lot bigger
if we weren't doing heavy CIDR aggregation - and that you'll burn a few bits
ensuring that aggregation works (try aggregating a /8 and 2 /12's even if
all announced from the same AS and are numerically consecutive...)
