I guess I'm confused.  I have a /32 that I have broken up into /47's for my discrete POP locations.  I don't have a network between them, by design.  And, I won't announce the /32 covering route because there is no single POP that can take requests for the entire /32 - think regionalized anycast.

So, how is it "worse" to announce the deaggregated /47's versus getting a /32 for every POP?  In either case, I'm going to put the same number of routes into the DFZ.
