We keep Internet routes in the global table on all routers 
we operate. Different routers have different capabilities 
when it comes to how many routes they can hold in a VRF, or 
how many VRF's they can have with a fixed number of routes 
in them.

We also want to avoid putting too much reliance on MPLS for 
basic services like Internet access. We relegate MPLS-based 
services to those that MUST have it to work, e.g., BGP-
MVPN's, l2vpn's, l3vpn's, VPLS, e.t.c. Anything else that 
doesn't really need MPLS lives on its own, e.g., IPv6 (no 
need for 6PE), Internet access, e.t.c.

Keeping it really stupid is what we're after :-).
