Presumably nothing, as long as you guaranteed that your IP address, netmask,
and routes actually match the reality of your network configuration.
They also cover the case where there are two (or more) routers on the
network and you don't want to have to configure more specific routes
on all your workstations.
As I said - if your config (including routes) matches your network reality.
Note that the rest of your comment addresses the case where your initial config
doesn't match reality...
Not true. Reality is that the default router configured on the hosts is capable
of getting the packets delivered. It's not optimal, but it is reality.
