 i thought that a common goal was to announce only your aggregates 
 (which would inherently include unused space) rather than announce 
 all your deag'ed space (which should be more well used)

 two of my acl's have dropped ~9million packets destined for bogon
 networks in the past week (only about 20 Mbps on this router)...bogon
 sources are probably equivalent (although i havent been logging it,
 but in light of recent discussions, i probably will start again)
