The CES is...wonky. My Foundry/Brocade/Extreme SEs have steered me away
from them on more than one occasion.
The CER is fine but of course more expensive. It'll take a full
Internet table, though, which is handy.
For AE resi deployments, I'd aggregate folks onto cheap 48 port switches
then terminate onto a single pizza box router somewhere "less deep" in
the network. Distributed, in-field L3 termination doesn't mean you have
to terminate L3 right at the customer-facing port.
