There are operators that are anti-MPLS, and run their route 
reflectors on the core routers in each PoP. This is fine.

For me that runs an MPLS network with dedicated route 
reflectors, I'd have a cluster in each PoP, although I 
realize this is not a necessarily commerically feasible 
approach for most operators.

BGP-ORR, as Saku aluded to, is a reasonable solution.
