Well, fundamentally it comes down to the fact that it's easier to make
sure it can't happen than to figure out that it is happening and make
someone stop it. If you can just avoid the subject entirely, it's much
easier. 

(3rd party BGP is also not an unalloyed win.)

Of course, if you don't agree with this viewpoint then you can
certainly not filter in the networks you run. That's your choice.
