Bill, your "vision" about statics taking over made me
laugh for quite a while.  Nobody is about to replace
dynamic routing with static.  What Randy is talking about
is a technique to avoid generation irrelevant rotuing updates.
I.e. the rest of the network does not have to be informed
that some of your interior LANs fell off, ok?

>In the end, the Internet looks just like the telco mesh.

At least telephones work; and work reliably.

Unlike Internet.

And telephone network is orders of magnitude bigger than
Internet; and went through numerous radical technology
changes without losing integrity.

Guess, telco engineers did something right.
