[c-nsp] ISR4451 or ASR920

We bought a few 4451's but that was before the 4431 came out.

For edge gigabit internet devices (BGP default route only) , when NOT using ASR1k,  we now use ISR4431/K9 + 1 gig throughput  license
They are one U, unlike 4451 which is 2U and somehow filled with bricks

Pricing for the ASR920 is complicated due to hardware/software licenses and models, but base list price of the ISR4451 is about 3x the base list price of ASR920-12CZ.  So if ASR920 works for the requirements, it seems to be "the!" platform of choice.

(Still waiting for someone to explain to me how control-plane protection works on ASR920... is it 6500-style CoPP, ASR9k-style LPTS, or "we have a fast CPU, we don't need this stuff!"-denial?)
