The main thing IMO is to have scalable routing, and some

Makes complete sense from a routing perspective, because someone else
is feeling the pain and the routers are seeing the gain.
But there are maybe a few million routers in the world, and maybe even
fewer for which scalability is a serious issue, compared to a few
billion hosts. Deploying something new at the network layer that might
require changes to host stacks or applications to maintain performance
at current levels would be a non-starter.
