Yes a very big unless. Multi-core processors are already available

Anyone have a decent pointer to something that covers the
current state of the art in algorithms and (silicon) router
architecture, and maybe an analysis that shows the reasoning
to get from those to realistic estimates of routing table size limits?

That is a pretty big "unless" .
