Somehow we are seeing an exponential growth in the number of prefixes in the last 12 months, while it was linear for the 5 years before that ( http://www.employees.org/~tbates/cidr.hist.plot.html ) What 'threshold' has triggered this sudden event, with routes going from 60,000 to 90,000 in just 12 months? Multihoming becoming fashionable? Dinky-rink providers getting multihomed, and for lack of engineering experience announcing 32 /24's out of their scattered POPs in addition to their /19 aggregate because they can't get their load balancing right without it or have never heard of the 'NO_EXPORT' attribute (I could point fingers now)?
