Mine is located in /sbin for these reasons:
1. it is necessary for admins network diagnosis (so some sbin dir)
I do not judge route to be necessary for normal users

2. if the system is somehow "network starting" it is root-essential
I don't deal with networks, so the second might sound a bit funny.
What I mean with that is, if I have only the smallest thinkable root
partition mounted (cause other things fail) will I be able to do all
networking diagnosis and repair with the programs on the root partition?

Just my opinion, arguments partly stolen from fhs-2.1 version.
