cpe, not core.  and an oft-unmentioned problem, as aggregation routers take
relatively large aggregations via channelized t3/e3 and bigger interfaces,
and most of those routers are underhorsed (insert rant on 75xx sl^H^Htime-
to-market), doing it on aggregation routers is often not reasonable.

it would if folk did it.  hence they don't.

optimism is not warranted.
