For me you can complain to vedors that they make crappy boxes which
don't do what you need. That is fine and I will not say a one bad word
against it. 

On the other hand I (helping to deploy mpls-vpns around the world for a
few years in a number of networks including these days even your ATT)
just can't watch stating that the arcitecture of 2547 is screwed only
because current platforms don't scale 5 years ahead.
