As a P, fine (except if you're doing NG-MVPN, of course, which would
make it a poor branch router).

The "lightweight PE" is where my concern comes in. And if the EX4600 is
the same as the QFX in this regard, same problem, i.e., if the OP is
expecting all PE functionality he'd get on an MX in this unit, he needs
to reset his expectations.
