Please show me a single router, from any vendor, which supports those interfaces yet cannot handle 100K+ routes. Even while under significant (but not 100%) load.

It depends on the stability of the routes. Conditions can exists
that can arguably make either one of our statements true or false.
I belive you will find older dark blue routers with bridges painted
on them run out of gas trying to forward packet and deal with route
changes no matter how much RAM you cram in them.

Dampening is alternative way to filter.



The black and white simplicity expressed by people on this forum is
unbelievable.

You mean like: "Yet, I don't belive every corner of every network has routers that can
easily chew through 100,000 route tables." ??

Yes, like my simplistic statement on black and white simplicity.
