Well, that's strictly speaking wrong.
It works because the eth0(uml)/tap0(host) is a unicast connection.
Can your hosting company simply provide you with a proper default route?

Yeah... I have no solution for you on FS 2.02.
Openswan 2.2.1 has some experiemental code to dispense with the
nexthop, but at present, pluto still demands that it be there. It turns
out it is important for on-demand keying (such as OE or %trapsubnet).
You may be able to lie and set the default route to some arbitrary
value that is on the same "link" as your eth0.
