    Yes I could, if you and your customers had all the routes

with routing 101, this has to do with filtering customers and
having anti-spoofing filters as well as route objects for any
prefix you will source packets from.  

         ___T1 to Verio, With BGP____Verio______
        /                                       \

         ---T1 to Sprint, No BGP-----Sprint-----

Now, the customer, over their two T1 transit circuits does the

as-path access-list 1 deny .*

neighbor verio filter-list 1 in

ip route sprint

Should the customer have to register a route with Sprint to make
this work?  How does UUNet, who only received a route from Verio,
know incoming packets from Sprint aren't spoofed?  Note also, even
if these cases are in the IRR, UUNet's filter for Sprint will be
larger than the number of routes currently received, since there is
no route for this prefix that needs to be in the filter.

[Note, I don't suggest this configuration is common or useful on
its own, but rather it's a simple enough case it can be used for
discussion in e-mail.]

Hmm this isnt a real world scenario tho.. if you multihome there should be BGP 
on both paths..

In the example above Sprint arent accepting or sourcing a route so there is no
issue on routes being passed into Sprint or UUNET and we're talking here about
spoofing of routes not packets
