Maybe I missed it, but is there something in your solution that keeps dual-homed leaves from having to renumber when changing ISPs? In your concept, is there some "ownership" of the address space on the part of the customer? I know that being able to swing to a new provider (due one of a hundred reasons, including Layer 8 manangement decisions) without having to renumber or suffer significant downtime is one of the things that makes dual-homing appealing.
