So we're saying that the forwarding plane on the ASR1001 can 
handle 1,000,000 hardware entries out of the factory, but 
that you'll need to have the 8GB of control plane memory 
installed in the router to achieve that?

Interesting. I'd have thought 4GB of control plane memory 
would be sufficient :-).
