To my knowledge it is somewhat vendor specific. I've used policy routes and
tag switching in dividing and altering traffic flows. I do know that with
some vendors, it is important to make sure you activate the optimizations
for things such as policy routing to save mass amounts of cpu time. I'm
still a neophyte when it comes to tag switching. Others might help better in
that.
