 The only issue I have I with your reply is that is somehow still acceptable to not have these features in a core device.

The 7600 is actually quite a poor choice as an edge device (any edge)  
due to its caveats regarding NetFlow, ACLs, and uRPF.  It's far better  
suited to a core role, where it can handle mpps running without the  
need for these critical edge features.
