no, I am not. I don't bend reality to adapt to my disbility, but find 
solutions to challenges offered.

Eventually routers stopped being able to handle full routing
in 16Mb of memory, and suddenly the very real cost of
carrying routing information around became clear to a number
of providers: how much did replacing a bunch of mostly-AGS+
routers with 64Mb Cisco 7000-series routers cost?

This memory jump has occured more than once.  I remember 4 and 8 meg
routers.  16 meg boxen were deamed large enough when they were created.
The leap to 64 is just another step in the process.

nothing longer than /18 or /19 (it's /18 now, but it's
not entirely inflexible, and dialogues continue) will 
have global scope.

As an aside, is anyone else besides Sprint behind this /18
model?  I know that Sean is a big proponent but I have heard
no other public comment on this. (well there was one, which
indicated that the community had reached consenses on this point,
which is why I ask.)
