Completely agree. But this is needed to integrate into an existing network. 
OSPF would've been my first choice.

Why not use isis or ospf?  Both are fully vendor neutral, and they both
support mpls networks properly.  EIGRP has some interesting features, but
the vendor tie-in cost is way too high to even consider using it.  IGP
migration is quite do-able, even for large networks, and all cisco devices
which speak EIGRP will also speak at least ospf, if not isis.
