According to the end to end argument, the only possible solution
to the problem, with no complete or correct alternatives, is to
let hosts directly participate in IGP activities.
See the paper by Saltzer et. al.
So your entire argument is based on an academic paper from 1981 and
that host systems should participate in IGP.
We tried that.
It didn't scale well.
The Internet today is very different than the Internet in 1981.
