I remember reading a while back that customers of nLayer IP transit

Anyone planning to do this might want to be aware that the validation
process of flowspec does not limit actions.

In practice this means, if you do run flowspec to your customers, your
customers likely can inject traffic to arbitrary VRFs.

You can match flow actions by extended communities and not accept
actions you do not like. For example, to permit only "discard" action
you can match 

    community flow_discard members traffic-rate:*:0;

Or am I missing something ? 

I feel RFC should have explicitly stated valid actions for validation
process, which operator MAY change, and any other action MUST cause
validation process to fail.


In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. 
But, in practice, there is.
