Puzzled:  How does the IPv6 routing table get smaller?

There's currently social pressure against deaggregation, but given time
why do you think the same drivers that lead to v4 deaggregation won't also
lead to v6 deaggregation?

(small multihomers means more discontiguous blocks of PI space too, right?)
