Mike says
The REAL problem is the growing complexity of the ROUTING COMPUTATION,
not the size of the resulting forwarding table.  even if routers
had infinite memory, we would still be crushed by the routing
computation if allowed to grow unchecked.

and the frequency at which the computation must be done
