Seems they had to find a way to solve NP-complete problems in sub-exponential time in order to give us better algorithms for guaranteed-optimal routing. Anyway, sorry to be snide - any suggestions you have about algorithms for exchanging routing data between (or inside of) providers that also takes into account link size and perhaps hop-count, as opposed to just AS-PATH, are welcome at the next IETF meeting.
