sure, if your BGP holdtime is less than 50ms :-)
On a series note, GR253 specs it at 50ms. Convergence in regional rings,
however, is often more a function of propagation delay, and more
realistically, with larger-than-probably-should-be rings expect times more
around the 100ms range.
As for how it'd look on your router, assuming a trunk failure, you'd likely
see a bunch of CRC or frame errors on the interface, and an array of SONET
errors on the controller. Then, presumably, you'd see a bit more latency on
the connection while running on the usually less-optimally-routed protect path.
Of course, more interesting than presumably transparent trunk failures in
relation to SONET protection, are trib failures with inter-router APS on the
trib side. This requires a bit more attention to detail (speaking from
