Without discussing it with the right folks here ahead of time, I suspect we
could do this at good speed in some, but not all routers, in our product


Now the big question: is this useful in routers carrying a default route?

I'm not entirely sure about what you mean, but I'd envision that the
best place to do this filtering would be in routers attached to
"end" customers, which frequently use default routes.
