AWS Direct Connect - Peering VPCs to Tier 1's and MPLS

Just got this dropped on my desk an hour ago, and I'm not finding as much
material online as I might have hoped for...

It looks like the easiest solution is to just hang a router/firewall at
Equinix Ashburn and AWS-DC to that, and then peer it to carriers both IP and
MPLS; is there a "native" way to do that from an AWS VPC instead?

Any public or private replies cheerfully accepted; will summarize what I
can to the list.
