The problem being, that you would need to know where these packets
originated, and if you knew that, you could probably get the problem
fixed in the first place.  Lack of a soci-technological solution
for interprovider backtracing limits the utility of this, and
since you can't really pin point the 10 ten bogon transit providers
you don't have much ability to shame people into fixing their stuff.
