Not saying that I have not see non-forged DoS attacks too, or even
which is more common, just saying they exist, are happening today, and
cause non-trivial problems for some providers.
From my _personal_ experience (not my company, not a scientific

ignoring spoofed sources would be a mistake, IMHO.
