Strict uRPF (feasible paths variant, RFC3704) works just fine with
multihomed customers here.
But we don't allow TE more specifics either from the customer or from
peers, so the longest prefix matching doesn't get messed up. And with
certain kind of p2p link numbering, you may need to add a dummy static
route. But it works.
