How are you providing source address assurance, on either a MAX or a TNT?
My understanding, which may well be flawed, is that the only way is with
a filter.  I have heard claims, which may also be flawed, that filters
have a severe performance impact on MAX and TNT.

Without source address assurance, how do you know that the packets are
actually coming from the user who was assigned that address at that time?
