If the problem is truely no router vendor make a router capable of 
holding a fully filtered route table we need to tell the router vendors
this is a mandatory requirement or we won't buy their routers.  Remember,
once upon a time when no router could handle more than 30,000 routes or
64,000 routes.  Once the router vendors were told what was needed, they
built a box to meet that need.

It is not a given that no router will never support filtering a full
tier-1 ISP's route table.  Its just no one has made it a requirement.

Lets make it a requirement of the router vendors.
