Is it possible that simply having a much smaller routing table overall in
terms of sheer number of prefixes in the DFZ has a positive performance
impact on passing packets, which coupled with the fact that implementations
may be routed better/more efficiently due to a lack of "legacy cruft"
creates a better experience for many packets?

Just a theory/hypothesis with no data to back it up.
