Actually, there is a clean way of doing it with the latest 11.2 code thru 
CSCdj14784. This is how it works:

Command Syntax: 
        router rip
        default-information originate [route-map <map-name>]
 This command can be used to force a router to generate a default route via
 RIP even when the router does not carry a default route.  
 The optional route-map can be used to specify the condition(s) (i.e., the 
 match clause) under which a default route is generated, as well as to specify 
 the interfaces (i.e., the "set interface" clause) to advertise the default 
 If the optional route-map is not configured or if there is no "set interface"
 clause in the configured route-map, the default route is advertised to all
 interfaces running RIP. 
 Here, extended access-lists can not be used in the route-map.
