The only problems we have are related to customers that have another provider and don't send us all their netblocks because of statics, etc..

This would be useful in a default-free network, but I'd be concerned with them deploying this in the lower end boxes that aren't default-free. It's hard to determine what is something to drop or not. What would be nice is a "ip drop private-blocks" or somesuch, but because many people build vpns, etc... with the lower end boxes also, as a vendor i'd be too concerned about that. - Jared
