Just add commit to IOS-XE and maybe even RPL and we're good.

To be fair, i'm not sure if IOS-XR is inherently that much more
expensive from HW POV. Probably somewhat more memory hungry due to IPC
being too slow, leading to duplication of state in various processes,
but DRAM isn't going to be large contributor to the BOM.
