[6bone] IPv6 routing table size

	a single "million" is either way too large or 
	way too small.  Depends on if you beleive the
	aggregation model will hold. A prgmatic design
	choice would be for supporting a table size of
	2x32nd number of entries, presuming CIDR.
	Is such a design practical? Not with todays
	technolgies.  How much social engineering
	can be done to ensure that choice is not

% One million subnets, yes; this would be totally unaggregated though.
% Should not be more than 50k-80k routes aggregated.
% I am not sure I would agree with an order of magnitude smaller, but I
% think that a v6 routing table should be smaller than the v4 equivalent.
% The biggest (v4) routing table I have seen myself is 200k and change.
