Does this work? At least in some initial tests we did, it seemed as 
if JunOS would internally reorganize/optimize these and this would not 
be sufficient. But we tested prefix-length-range instead of "simple" 
route-filters, so the behaviour could be different there:

                 route-filter 2001:0678::/29 prefix-length-range /29-/48;
                 route-filter 2001:0c00::/23 prefix-length-range /48-/48;
                 route-filter 2001:13c7:6000::/36 prefix-length-range /36-/48;
                 route-filter 2001:13c7:7000::/36 prefix-length-range /36-/48;
                 route-filter 2001::/16 prefix-length-range /35-/35;
                 route-filter 2001::/16 prefix-length-range /19-/32;
