Subject: path MTU vs. default route

I have a machine on a network which is served by two routers, one of which
is the default route at any given time. The router selection happens via
gated and ICMP router discovery protocols.
The problem is, if I enable PMTU as well, routes to the then-current
router are added explicitly:
Destination Gateway Flags Refs Use Mtu Interface
default 18.104.22.168 UG 45 2355519 - fxp0
22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199 UGHD 3 2119 1450 fxp0
What I'd like to see is:
188.8.131.52 default UGHD 3 2119 1450 fxp0
so when the router changes, the connetion won't get screwed.
Is this possible using our current routing table bits?
