As far as I see it S/RTBH is in no way a solution against smart

Once again, I've used S/RTBH myself and helped others use it many, many
times, including to defend against attacks with shifting purported source
IPs. flowspec, IDMS and other tools are very useful as well, but S/RTBH is
supported on a lot of hardware, if operators choose to configure it.
It is not a panacea. It is one tool in the toolbox.
Folks can either choose to make use of it or choose not to do so; it is
operationally proven, it does work, and it's certainly better than nothing.
