I think it's pretty well known that the point you mention is FUD.  Besides,
it's not really intended to be 'multiple tables' with multiple instances of
routing processes.. it's an indexed table run by the same routing process.

Take a look at the [email protected] archives for a rather exhaustive and exhausting
discussion of this very subject, or provide facts as to what specifically
doesn't scale.
