"Proven"? When, where, by whom, based on what data?
There are less than 10.000 LIRs in existance today, all RIRs combined.
So that would be a maximum of 10.000 routing table entries (if we
can manage to keep it at "1 prefix per LIR").

10.000 routing table entries is something far below the near 140.000 we
have today in IPv4. While I'm seriously unhappy with the 140.000 IPv4
routes, it *does* scale up to fairly insane numbers.
Total number of prefixes smaller than registry allocations: 60210 (58081)
