Maybe because you don't have to worry about the routing daemon, so a bit
more secure. But it is a nightmare to configure dozens of routers by
hand, even if you use cfgengine or similar tools. And with static
routing, configuring back-up routes is more complicated.

So I bet on dynamic routing. We use quagga on several Debian boxes as
dedicated routers and a few openwrt at some points (also uses quagga).
We use BGP at the border routers (since international and in-country
ISP-exchange routing is advertised via BGP) and all BGP routes are
advertised via OSPF inside + internal dynamic routing with OSPF.
Making a good dynamic routing policy is hard, but makes life easier
