Unless you can find someone huge to start announcing prefixes with -large, 
there is little incentive for people to upgrade their code.

So what you're proposed means thereis a "first mover disadvantage", just 
like it was in the beginning of DNSSEC and IPv6 deployment.

If you have connectivity to an ISP, then that's that ISPs problem. If you 
have connectivity problems to hundreds of ISPs, then that's your problem.
