To move toward a positive direction ...

Discuss the effect that wide spread filtering against spoofed
addresses would have on the current number of DDOS attacks.

Why can't access router vendors be jawboned into providing anti spoofing
filters as a default configuration; or at least automate the process to
eliminate spoofed addresses in the wild?

Have a logo like the good housekeeping seal for networks that filter
on the egress.

As Paul stated, demand it from peers.

It is a pain. If the political will exist, it will be done. If the
PR and marketing folks think it will increase sales, it will be done
a lot faster.
