So, where are static bogon filters appropriate?

#define static

Obviously, one's bogon filters (both for iACLs and for prefix-lists or whatever other mechanism one uses to filter the route announcements one accepts) must be dynamic enough in nature to accommodate updates when new blocks are cracked open. 'Static' shouldn't be read as 'eternal', although that's often what ends up happening.
