IPv4 smaller than /24 leasing?

IPv4 /24 is commonly the minimal chunk advertised to (and accepted by) 
neighbors. If I run a global (or regional) network, I may advertise this 
/24 -- or rather an aggregate covering it -- over my diverse 
interconnection with neighbors, your /27 being part of the chunk and 
routed to you internally (if you're va customer)-- no need for 
encapsulation efforts. Similar scenario may be multi-upstream, subject 
to acceptance of "punching holes in aggregates"... Am I missing 
something? What's the trigger for doing tunneling here?

Happy New Year '18, by the way !
