Can the 2x 10 SFP+ ports on the A9K-RSP440 be used like a normal 10G 
port you would have on a line card?

The datasheet says that they are "Two 10-GE Small Form-Factor Pluggable 
Plus (SFP+) virtualization cluster ports".
I assume the virtualization cluster port is to do with VSS/nV, Looking 
at images of the ASR 9001 it has ports specifically labelled as cluster 
ports where as the images of the RSP440 labelled them as SFP+. So I am 
guessing they are normal ports which can be configured to be cluster 
ports and could used normally to link up to rest of the network?
