odd that your response to a request for a technical problem statement is a
request to form a private clique and a pre-made value judgement on the
meaning that nobody excspt clique groupies will want to join.  imiho, very
few social problems have technical solutions, and vice versa.

do i correctly glean that you are want peering agreements to require that
peers not allow packets with spoofed source addresses?  this would not seem
too socially unreasonable as long as we know that it is not technically
unreasonable.  to test the latter, could we please enumerate
  o the technical means for a peer to achieve this, e.g. i suspect that
    2827 is one piece
  o how thoroughly we think they could achieve this
  o how we can test that it has been achieved
