It is in the best interest of the router cartel to continue riding Moore's law forever and end up with a billion entries in the routing table which would allow them to keep renewing the installed router base every other year because naturally they cap memory and CPU in every model for the sole of being able to sell you a stinkin' new one two years later. And yes I am a stockholder of the router cartel. The reason they say they can't guarantee being able to ride Moore's law is because they see a risk that it happens. The very fact that they are actually looking at alternatives to Moore is worrisome. Michel.
