If I use
  route add default -interface isp1
I wan't to have the packets routed trough isp1. I don't care about how
the routing table is held consistent, but I if the route is discarded
without my interaction it not only violates POLA, in this case it's
prohibits a valid use of the -interface feature (dial on demand via sppp
is broken at the moment).
