Earlier on this year, we really needed this feature but only 
realized that it was still under IETF development, and 
hadn't even been considered for reasonable development by 
the vendors.

We ended up working within the natural constraints of MPLS 
and IP to get what we wanted, but think the BGP Add Paths 
feature would certainly come in very handy due to some of 
the information hiding route reflectors introduce.
