Anybody can aggregate anything he wants to in his own network. 0.0.0.0/0
is a very effective aggregate, however it generally results in sub-optimal
routing when diverse egress paths are available.
Based on how the policy reads all micro-allocations will be made from a
distinct block of address space.
