I won't kill you and I think it will be good to have.

From my perspective, /16 - /48 is a 'good set' to allow generally.

If one wants strict stuff, check Gert's filter(*) pages for good hints.
Folks who don't want to update their filters should not apply them.
Then again if you don't want to maintain your routers then don't
participate in the internet ;)
