There is one setup where you would need default route from your provider.
If you have no IBGP between two sites and your prefix is a large /16 on side and maybe a /18 from that /16 on another site. These site would not be able to talk to each other if you orginate from the same AS.
Other than that I see not harm in having both default and a full table since longest prefix match will always win even if you have 2 or more transits.
I think in that case you would use “allowas-in”.
