We currently do exactly that - dropping anything longer than a /23 with 
default routes to cover anything missing.    Since were replacing the 
routers anyway I would prefer to have the capacity to do things 
correctly rather than what, at least to me, seems a kludge.    It is a 
very workable solution - just not one I am completely comfortable with.
