The usual concern with multi-homed end sites is that end sites with IPv4 PA addresses assigned from provider X who wish to multi-home with provider Y wind up adding at least two entries to the global table, a more specific route to each of X and Y (which X will need to leak beneath the covering supernet if it wants to deliver the customer any traffic).

I don't know of any recent analysis which differentiates between this multi-homing pressure on the global table vs. inter-domain traffic engineering or gratuitous deaggregation, but it's fair to say I have not been looking.
