Also since the routing logic is simplified I'd even expect routing tables to drop in size, at least initially, despite the addresses being that much larger. I may be wrong on that, but see above.
What about IPv6 right here on earth?

But it's either route IPv6 on hardware built to optimize 32-bit-address performance or buy an IPv6-optimized twin for every router they have. Looks like doing the former hurts so bad it makes no difference, the switch to IPv6 will make them double their router investment either way.

My point is that IPv6 is easier and cheaper to route than IPv4, not the other way around.
