5 years from now you will see routers from multiple vedors allowing you
to store & process orders of mangnitute of more routes. As a matter of
fact if you have so much routes - you as an opertator should only be
happy - as it means you are selling your new service and erning more

Besides for those individuals who have problems with  maintaining a
sinlge RIB with IGP routes I would higly advise a caution in deploying
an mpls-vpn service or even touching the routers :).
