You could use uRPF-loose there, or the customer could do:
route-map outbound-only permit 10
match prefix-list myprefixes
set community no-export
And bash the people who, in this age, don't have "neighbor x.y.z.a
send-community" on all their BGP sessions.

employer a rare and lonely exception to the rule)
