Basically, injecting current traffic state information into routing system
is a recipe for disaster. "Normal" flap due to equipment failures and
human interventions is bad enough already.
Somehow people in academia tend to underappreciate the sheer scale of the
Internet, and offer solutions which won't work at that scale.

"Roughgarden has a suggestion that wouldn't be expensive to
implement. Before deciding which way to send information, he
says, routers should consider not only which route seems the
least congested, but also should take into account the
effect that adding its own new messages will have on the
route it has chosen. That would be, he says, 'just a bit
altruistic' in that some routers would end up choosing
routes that were not necessarily the fastest, but the
average time for all users would decrease."
