We filter out default routes from our upstreams, but many of 
our customers request it so we send them both full + default 

We have not yet been in a position where a default route to 
an upstream would have come in handy, as we do a lot of 
peering (close to 70% of our Internet traffic) and have a 
reasonable number of upstreams.
