1. I am not sure whether BGP could be classified as a "complex routing
2. The proposed scheme does not remove BGP from the routers. In fact, BGP is
used to communicate forwarding information between the routers and the route
So, if we're to assume that BGP is "a complex routing protocol", then using
router servers does not allow "to remove complex routing protocols from
routers". And if we're to assume that BGP is not a complex routing protocol,
then we don't have a problem of removing "complex routing protocols from
So, it seems that using route servers would have no impact wrt to removing
"complex routing protocols from routers".
