The full IP routing tables are something that you normally only have to deal 
with in a few devices at the perimeter of your network.

What is being talked about here is routing each /32 IP address individually 
throughout your network so that any IP address can be connected anywhere and 
have it 'just work' as far as the client on that IP is concerned.
