Hello again,
Another question for BGP VPN  experts.
If you provide Internet access and VPN service on the same MPLS Core
what are the pro and cons to transport in the core the public internet
routes (the full 120.000 prefixes)
as VPN-V4 prefixes and announce them through a VRF rather than as common
global routes ?
What are the trends in terms of security vs memory vs stability ?

Thanks in advance.
