Because the program "ip" is pretty cryptic, despite being way more 
powerful than most people know

Each line of the route-eth* file(s) is passed ad-literam to ip route 
commands so all error messages that you see come from ip. Examine 
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-routes for details. In your case, 
you should test the content of route-eth* by using:     ip route add

You could file a RFE either against iproute which actually triggers the 
messages you've seen or against initscripts (ifup-routes is provided by 
it - you could ask for a better parser ).
