And if you know they can't/won't send traffic to certain destinations, you
can static route those destinations to another carrier.

They're not really announcing...they're propogating a route someone else
announced.  As Vixie said, it's highly impractical to carve up a /16
(especially if it's not their space) just to avoid propogating a route for
a host they don't want to carry traffic to.
