Don't remember if I already answered this or not... I would say that scale
needs to encompass both the speed at which new tunnels are set up and torn
down as well as the rate at which topology changes in the network drive
tunnel modifications. Scale isn't just size of the control plane tables, but
also the rate at which those tables change.
