Cisco 2611XM as cheap border router

It would be fairly useful if Cisco had a published document that detailed
the minimum configuration for each major router line to support BGP with 1
to 4 full views. Of course, this would have to be periodically updated. By
this, I mean a separate overlay document for their entire router product
line. This would be very helpful to operators and integrators who get asked
about minimum configurations fairly frequently...

(I'm only picking on Cisco because they are 1) big and 2) have routers that
support BGP but don't have enough memory for full tables)
