It's interesting, but it reverts from the desired approach. Greedy 
routing? I thought only Cogent did that. :P

Seriously, I took from it that we can make routing more scalable if we 
remove features in common use today. Yet business demand is that we are 
actually trying to increase the information we want to pass between 
AS's. Between multicast/unicast v4/v6, mpls, extensive traffic 
engineering, I don't see how the research could be applied.
