Funny you mention that. IIRC we were using 6509s with the SUP720 (in effect making them 7609 routers).
big difference between a c6509 and a c7609. while you can run a sup720 inside of a c7600 -- there are a lot of stupid caveats that go with it. more people run the 'rsp720' in the c7600 -- which has a lot more features and better performance as a 'router' -- instead of a campus switch with routing features.
both are used extensively in service provider networks, but the two are not the same.
