Simple: one of the contributors to the explosion is the drive for PI prefixes.  This is driven by sites that choose to be multi-homed and want failover semantics that BGP can provide.

With ILNP, a site can get this semantics with multiple PA prefixes.

I hope that this is clear.  If not, this has been discussed ad nauseum in the mailing list archives.

Can we please move on?

Cheers,
Tony
