Not all big (or small) iron vendors do well with not using memory for  
refused routes.  One of those is the largest deployed vendor with no  
caps in their name.

So your small guy may have a filter to drop anything longer than a / 
24, but it's still eating up memory in his unit.  Unless the upstream  
is willing to filter it for him, *boom* goes his router one day.
