This part here just boggles the mind. Not everybody out there that needs
full routes is pushing enough bandwidth to justify the cost of a 720gbps
backplane -- medium sized datacenters, regional ISPs, etc all really like
full routes but may never see even 30gbps of traffic. Everybody I've talked
to about this particular problem has the same feelings -- that big C is
hanging their 6509 user base out to dry.
