FYI you can get 6500 equipment used and recertified/eligible for Cisco
maintenance for less than the price point of the 4507R loaded.

Not exactly the info you were looking for, but figured I'd chime in.

The Cat6K appears to serve many ISP/NSP and production data centers quite
well as a mixed layer2/3 device.  Because of cost, as well as the benefits
of the Supervisor IV (4507) over a minimally equipped Supervisor II (65xx),
we are considering deploying a series of 4507R on our LAN edge.

Does anybody have field experience (or 2nd-hand experience) with 
deploying the 450x in a similar role?  In particular I am curious 
if the layer3 performance/maturity is as good as the 65xx in a 
similar configuration with BGP.

Our environment requires BGPv4 (so we'll need the separate InterDomain
routing license), GigE EtherChannel, and a significant number of layer3/4
ACLs, and VLANs.
