That's why I'm not saying that it will be exactly like Moore's law.

My point is, that processes which have super-exponential growth are the 
exception, not the rule (if they exist at all). And you would be hard 
pressed to find any process in history that experienced exponential 
growth over a long time span and be at the same time vastly faster than 
the Moore's law.
