It's not clear whether BTNS would be used for BGP per se; network
managers may come to terms with the need for conventional IPsec and bite
the CA bullet anyway.

As to what will happen in 5-10 years, I'm not sure either, but I'll bet
money against any specific prediction either way. I haven't seen one
come true in 25 years.
