Looks like the deployments you describe are large DC Clos/Benes fabric, then
the potentially deep label imposition would be done by the VMs right?
On transit nodes the 64x ECMP or super-deep labels is no problem for
NPU/lookup process as it's always just top label lookup and resolving to a
single egress interface.
