If one or both sides aren't doing any sort of uRPF or ingress filtering
on their edges, it may still be possible to throw packets at bgp from
behind the remote peering router.
It's probably not a bad idea to have an additional filter to block
traffic going to port 179 on the peer's dst from _any_ src on all of the
other interfaces on the peering router. (Or some other mechanism which
does the same thing, which I think Sean was pointing out.) It's sort of
mutually beneficial for both sides of a given peering to protect each
other, as it's not really possible for a filter on one side to fully
