A lot of people seem to be doing this.I struggled with this, and came up with the following. We basically use a standard route-map for all customers where the first term looks for the community. The customer also has a prefix-list on their neighbor statement allowing their blocks le /32. The following terms (term 2 and above) in the route-map which do NOT look for the customer discard community, have a different standard/generic prefix-list evaluation which blocks cruft and permits 0.0.0.0/0 ge 8 le 24. By doing this, I only accept a customer /32 from his dedicated prefix-list when it has the DOS discard community, otherwise I catch them with the ge 8 le 24 in the following terms.
Mind if I ask what's the harm of letting customers announce /32 or /29s into your core as long as you filter at your borders?
The additional prefixes are not going to kill your routers, and it allows the customer more finely tuned traffic controls. IOW: Seems there is some utility and no harm.
