I suppose some arrangement between you and your provider is alright. But 
since I (and I'm guessing, several other) operators that purchase from 
NTT will not accept anything longer than a /24 from them, it only serves 
internal forwarding within NTT for their customers that leak /25's or 
longer into them.

I was wondering why we haven't seen this take off in the global DFZ :-).
