Why aggregrate ? You could just announce the /32's of the actual broadcast
addresses, and cause much less damage to other resources on that network.

Also if you do aggregrate, your blackhole route will probabally be less
specific then the 'real' route, so the 'real' route and not the blackhole
one is what would get used.
