uunet does operate lots of dialup RAS though correct? any reason why urpf 
is not reasonable there?

just because its not perfect and doesnt solve every problem doesnt mean 
its useless.

miniscule amounts of traffic in uunet's core is still enough to ddos many 
a victim into oblivion. anyone who has been ddos'd by uunet customers can 
appreciate that.
