This document describes an application of Segment Routing to scale
the network to support hundreds of thousands of network nodes, and
tens of millions of physical underlay endpoints.  This use case can
be applied to the interconnection of massive-scale Data Centers (DCs)
and/or large aggregation networks.  Forwarding tables of midpoint and
leaf nodes only require a few tens of thousands of entries.  This may
be achieved by the inherently scaleable nature of Segment Routing and
the design proposed in this document.
