Juniper has tons of non-intels, most of them PPC. All switches, ACX, SRX
(cavium, ppc, intel), I don't expect JNPR will reap any significant OPEX
savings by killing of PPC MX.
Even in Intel MX boxes, your linecard CPU is still PPC, so stuff like message
passing RP<->LC CPU without worrying about endianness never was viable.
