Probably to advertise the local net to the ISP, so it knows how to
route to it.

How?  The ISP's gateway box is one place you'd need to add static
routes to obey your advice.

Mind you, having it listen to routing info is dubious in any case; the
next dialup user could also start advertising routes to your machines,
and the router won't know which to believe.

If you think it can be done with static routes, please explain how.
Don't forget to explain how the ISP's router box discovers where to
send packets for boxes behind the dialup machine.
