I agree that it is difficult if not impossible to implement at the core.
One would think that having an extra 30 - 155Mb of traffic on their network
that they're paying to transit to the world would motivate them to take a
look at the edge/customer router(s) that are allowing the broadcast
however.  I would certainly let one of our customers know that it is in
their best interest to either implement the filters/access lists or give us
a map of their subnetting and let us do it for them.
