For my company IPv6 recursive lookup, faster routing table updates (BGP/full view) and IPv6 route reflection are really important.

You have never been a programmer. Test software is far from perfect. Complex software can easily include deadly bugs. If you don't want your device to lock up, don't use RC, there are other two branches that suit you better.
