Yes,  the  aesthetics of using a  "/1 route" for that purpose are very poor.

Don't implement design objectives using subtle side-effects,   when a
proper tool
is available -- human errors later are likely.

Using a /1   static  to  achieve a  "longer prefix"  to override a
default falls in that
category, when    routers have  a  filtering mechanism capable of
explicitly expressing
the desired policy  :)
