Can you elaborate what routers with what software you are using? It
surprises me a bit to find routers anno 2018 which can't do OV in some
shape or form.

If you implement 'invalid == blackhole', and cannot do normal OV - it
seems to me that you'll be blackholing the actual victim of a BGP
hijack? That would seem counter-productive.

Kind regards,
