Mine don't, and I assure you they are quite real.

Otherwise, there's not much to gripe about in your message.

(Better approaches imho involve DHCP handing out genuinely useful
routing information on the local subnet(s), including prefix/mask->next_hop
information.  Then there are a couple ways of handling redundant
routers, e.g., an oob protocol among the routers to let them decide
who answers ARP requests for a given router handed out by DHCP).
