I'm all for raising the bar on attackers and having end networks implement

addressing the host security problem...

Do you believe backbone networks should do nothing?

      I'm not sure what you are saying here, backbones do do
something, the problem is that it's easy to fill up a T1.  *really* easy.

I was asking about Chris's use of "having end networks implement
proper source filtering" implying that backbones should not do so.
