If CentOS works for your routers, then that sounds like a fine
solution to me. If there is a reason to shrink (small disk space,
running from flash, constrained memory, too many services running,
load is high), then shrink or find another distro. But there is
nothing wrong with running a complete desktop or server oriented
distro on a machine whose primary job is routing.
