And, as an aside, the draft-ferguson-ingress-filtering-03.txt draft

We already do source filtering for the majority of our connection customers;
the exceptions are those on full DS1s who have announcement capability
(even if they're not using it).

This *includes*, by the way, our dial customers.....  Its not impossible,
but does require a bit of work.
