10 million is my rough estimate for the number of medium-sized and larger
businesses that would exist in a fully developed world of 10 billion
people (i.e. one such business per thousand people). 100 million
is an upper limit - one multihomed network per hundred people - at
that level even the dentist's offices are multihomed.
I don't think we need to design for a world where most domestic subscribers
are multihomed, or care in the least if they get a new IP address
each time they connect.
