I'm looking for some guidance on how to configure a REP common link over VPLS. I've read a bunch of docs that more or less elude to the fact that it should be supported, but no combination of documents thus far have clearly outlined what the prerequisites are in terms of software, ES vs. ES+ hardware or relevant configuration glue to make this work.

I've got two 7600/SUP720/SRE5 boxes with a chain of ME3400s connecting the two over 6724 LAN based linecard ports. I've also got an ES port between each 7600 to carry the SVI based EoMPLS foo between the two, and this is where I'd like to establish the VPLS common link (hopefully the below ASCII diagram will show up OK):
In terms of config, I've got the 6724 chain side configured as a REP segment and the REP admin VLAN is 1/default. I haven't been able to find the configuration glue needed to make REP aware that the common link for the segment is the VPLS pseudowire between the two 7600s:
