I had looked briefly, does anybody here actually use them as peering
routers? I've seen a few implementations using them in the MPLS P and PE
router roles but never as border routers.

If there is some precedent for using them in this role that's good to hear
and I'll take another look, I was loath to move away from Juniper as our
current boxes are been the model of reliability.

We use them as peering routers and are in the process of upgrading all
of our peering routers to MX boxes.
