Not silly question at all, it was just longer mail that many people
care to read (including me).

It's not broken, it's just ciscos name for NPU, two PXF's doesn't mean
they have anything in common, apart being NPU. In essence, CRS-1 
uses NPU's afaik, of course cisco doesn't call them PXF, due to
bad publicity. Cooler word for NPU style design is probably
cell processor, makes me feel warm already about my NSE100's.
Yes, you can design broken NPU, NSE-1 was good example of that :).
