... for the same reason you would want an mpls p/w instead of
point-to-point vlan for remote connectivity.  I.e. no special hacks to
handle STP, local discovery protocols, etc; carrier state is preserved, and
you're not chewing up l2 cam space on the networking infrastructure and
doing mac limiting on the customer.  I have often wanted this particular
feature to get me out of a hole.
