I don't wish to express an opinon regarding the correct behaviour, but 
from RFC1812 5.3.9 Packet Filtering and Access Lists we have:

"The router MUST allow packets to be silently discarded (i.e.,
discarded without an ICMP error message being sent)."

does this not explicting require routers to support dropping of packets?
