Because our heavily customised e-smith box doesnt play well with
multilink. ):

We are planning on getting a router once dsl is provisioned so might as
well get one now.

nothing wrong with setting up a bonded ppp on a throwaway linux box, but
im of the opinion of why bother if i can get a router that does it just
fine and has the capacity to become our adsl router as well.
