Avoiding downward stairs using Kinect and navigation stack?

Hi,

I've been looking for some information on avoiding downward stairs and dropoffs using the ros navigation stack. What do people typically do? Do they just make their own costmap layer for cliffs (pointcloud values where z < 0)? Or is there a better way? I couldn't find any packages or any mention of this in the costmap documentation.

Thanks!
