I was just thinking the same thing. :-)

As we push closer to the ipv4 route table limits of cisco's 6500/7600 series (with anything less than Sup720-3bxl), I suspect lots of networks are going to be forced to start doing some sort of filtering of routes beyond just refusing >24-bit networks or cisco's going to sell a lot more Sup720-3bxl's, FAN2 trays, and power supplies in the next year or two.
