What's interesting is I see more people (eg: datacenter operators) pushing for
BGP in their devices, and scale in them because it is well fed and maintained
vs trusting/using OSPF/CLNS/ISIS and getting the performance limits there fixed.

They would rather use the TCP timeouts vs OSPF timeouts for link discovery
and routing performance.  This tells me there is perhaps a gap in capabilities
or performance that isn't well documented and being worked around.
