I've found this to be easier to do if your network is reasonably
"centralized", i.e., there is one or two (or small handful) of "entry
and exit" points.

With a stretchy, relatively flat network that neither has a definite
entry nor exit point, it's a bit difficult to decide which failure mode
should take the default route away.
