Of course, we could adopt geographic allocations.  North American is
still working on (+1) in e.164 space.  We could shrink the global
route table to a few thousand routes.
We have this at a continental level. At less than a continental
level the argument against this is that at lower distances there
is a poorer and poorer map between geographic proximity and
(network) topological proximity. Pick any major US city without
a popular peering point / private peering for a trivial example.
