Except for those pesky bogon filters.... which corporations seem to like
to "fire and forget".
Perhaps that's something you should "outsource" to your provider?

Plus, you missed the part: "If you don't have multihoming requirements other than availability". Bogon filters do _not_ enhance availability. (And please don't argue about things like attacks from unallocated space - the disconnectivity caused by un- updated bogon filters is much higher than the increase from things like this.)
