DWDM Mux/Demux using 40G Optics

I guess that is the real question. Besides the client ports that are
clearly identified by channel number on Muxes, what channels can the
special ports handle?
http://www.fs.com/products/43723.html It has 4 special service port options:
1. Expansion Port (Based on what I am seeing, I think this would be to
stack another mux if you needed more channels. So I assume it allows all
channels to be added besides the client channels?)
2. Monitor Port (I think this is just a tap that you would hook a monitor
up to, and be able to see all channels coming through with a meter. I
assume not a good idea to add/drop channels through this port)?
3. 1310nm Port (Labeled as 1310, but clearly allows more than just 1310
since tutorial is saying it supports QSFP+ which is 1270 - 1330 nm, so what
range does it really support or is there no a range?)
4. 1550nm Port (Labeled as 1550nm, but I wonder if its like the 1330nm?)
Would you recommend a monitor port on every mux you buy?
