A small network when turning on MPLS Distribute Default Route, all traffic stops going in/out till the check is turned off. While off, outbound traffic does not use MPLS, and the edge router, even though MPLS has a forwarding database does not show any traffic going via MPLS.

This depends on your DSL Provider and the MTU they give you. Typically, 1420-1440 works well, but if it is a true bridge DSL then 1500 should be fine. If it is a PPPoE session it would make a difference as well.
