I agree with all aspects.

But I do ask:
Do you (the ISP) control the CPE (modem / ONT)? Could you push the
VxLAN (or maybe MPLS) functionality all the way into it?
This would have the added advantage of a (presumably) trusted device
providing the identification back to your core equipment.
Perhaps even minimal L3 routing w/ DHCP helper such that the customer
saw the CPE as the default gateway. (Though this might burn a lot more
IPs. This might not be an issue if you're using CGNAT.)
