I object to this proposal as there are many reasons that a prefix might 
not be in the table at the time where the measurements are made and also 
from the point at which the measurements are made.

It also makes use of the term "the routing table" if I look at several 
different 'tier 1' transit providers I can clearly see that their 
versions of "the routing table" are different. In one case I can see 
clear differences between their EU and US "full routing tables".
