I'd be very afraid of doing 100 OSPF areas on a single device without
TAC's (preferably someone from development's) blessing.  I've had "really
weird routing failures" with just a handful of OSPF areas on a 7206 which
were solved by reducing the number of areas.  That was a couple years
back, probably with 11.1CC code IIRC.
