I think geo-aggregation for the purpose of solving the routing
scaling problem is far over that line.
Have you read my draft? The only thing that it _requires_ is that the
RIRs start giving out address space with geography in mind. I don't
think this requires upgrading much humanity or even business
processes. Actually implementing the aggregation then has some
business impact (going from hot potato to cold potato) but since every
AS can decide for itself if and when to do this, that's simply a
tradeoff: what's cheaper: transporting traffic over some distance, or
buying bigger routers?
BTW, has anyone considered the issue where large international
organizations with many offices may want to advertise a prefix for
each office rather than a single one for the entire organization?
