This is my personal opinion and absolutely not going to push it to your

I do not like DROP firewall policy if such host exist in my network. It
would make troubleshooting (ie. traceroute, ping) harder.

Usually I talked that host administrator (whom also my colleage, this is
my network) that I would like ICMP to be allow only from certain host
(ie. monitoring host). That way, I can partially keep an eye on hosts
while not compromising his network policy.

Just my opinion though.
