Anyone can buy CRS-1 from Ci sco.  All you need is money.
Busting out my handy dandy cisco configuration tool I can see that this is a very expensive CPE solution.  This exercise cannot be about last mil e delivery, thinking so is foolish.  Given that and moving the technology t o the core it becomes: Money + laying off thousands of worthless telco TDM trans port people.  The solution that is presented is to take an existing 10G tra nsport DWDM network, remove transponders, replace with router gear instead of fo rklifting the end terminal systems.  This is a viable model.

Why are you waiting for the telco's to do something?
I am waiting for them to go out of business so I can pick assets pennies on the dollar.

Japan is spending over USD $30 Billion to brin g 100Mbps to the most (but
not all) of their country.  Verizon is s pending about $23 Billion on FTTH
to reach 18 million homes. CableLabs is hoping DOCSIS 3.0 will bring 400+
Mbps to the home without needing to replace the coax plant with fiber to
the home.
You are confused and your argument is orthogonal.  40G home delivery i s not currently an viable business model given the CPE cost.  This is about upgrading your current transport from 10G to 40G with minimal cost and eff ort.  For those that want 100G replace the handoff and incorporate the same or better modulation schemes.  Welcome to the Bell 202 to Bell 212 up grade.

All you need is money.  That is left as an simple exercise for the reader.
And to you obviousl y money is an infinite resource.
