Perhaps they have systems which can cope with 1M ipv6 entries, or perhaps 
not.  I'd suggest that right now and for the forseeable future, this is 
irrelevant because:

- the number of prefixes that routers can handle increases in time
- I currently see ~820 ipv6 prefixes.  That is 3 orders of base10 
magnitude less than 1M.  That means a lot of room for growth.
