MPLS enabled network QoS service-policy 'not working'

Hi !  I am looking for some recommendations regarding enabling mpls ip in core network. We have a standard service policy that classifies/tags packets based on port number ie. Citrix 1494 etc. This service-policy does not work when we mpls enable the interfaces because of the tag and is expected behaviour. Our main usage for MPLS will be to transport VPN's. To overcome the service-policy problem myy suggestion has therefore been to add some filtering that only allows mpls tagged traffic between BGP-MP peers with the following commands:

no mpls ldp advertise-lables

mpls ldp advertise-lables for acl_BGP_PEERS

I have tested this in lab and it work great but has to be added on every mpls enabled router in the network. Do you have any better suggestions or see any problems that this could cause ? I also read that its best practice to not enable MPLS for the whole core in a customer network as it doubles the memory usage for routing tables etc. What do you think ?

Best Regards,
