It does reduce the number of routes in the core. Another nice thing
is that it's incrementally deployable (different hosts can have
different levels of inteligence). However, host behavior is based on
knowledge of their IP addresses, and hosts have to be reconfigured
when PA provider connections change, so you still have renumbering
issues. Also routes are no better than they are today.
