As to your other question, you can generally ping and traceroute to the customer network from the PE provided that the address you are using for the ping/traceroute is present in the VRF of the specific PE. This would exclude MPLS ping and traceroute thoug, if this is what you are asking.
Hope this helps,

assuming the customer IP 10.1.1.1 is reachable through VRF MyVRFname. You also can use the extended ping and extended traceroute options, when pressing "enter" after the VRF name.
Without the "vrf MyVRFname" portion, ping and traceroute will use the global IP routing table, which should NOT contain customer IP addresses. Hence the ping/traceroute will fail unless you have address overlapp.
