Obviously reducing down the entire DFZ to a single default route is a bad case of premature optimization, which we all know is how so many engineering efforts get into trouble.

The right way to handle this would be for hosts to engage in both inter and intra domain routing with local routers, and then do their own aggregation if and when desired.
