I would think meter1+meter2+meter3 should not be greater than the link

Assuming you have more than one input interface going towards an egress
interface, then the possibility of overloading teh egress interface is
there (fan-in problem). I suppose a little engineering would help; but in
the worst case you can let GRED+CBQ handle the drops.
