Last time I measured time it takes to propage withdraw via good RR was
single milliseconds.

BGP can be easily setup in prefix independent way today.

Example 1:

If session to PE1 goes down, withdraw all RDs received from such PE.

Example 2:

Use IGP recursion - Use RFC3107 to construct your interarea LSPs. If PE
goes down withdraw it. IGP can still signal summary no issue as no inet.3
route.

Best,
R.
