Provider WAAS service for multiple MPLS VPN customers, possible?

Theoretically if both WAEs are placed inline on MPLS uplink, then it
should work -- unless WAAS code can only recognize IP/Ethernet but not
IP/MPLS/Ethernet traffic. I don't think WAAS is VRF aware and can
maintain a multi-VRF routing table.
