Whether or not the customer plans on advertising prefixes via BGP,
your standard contract/AUP should contain a provision that:
(a) requires that the customer provide a list of IP blocks from which
traffic may be sourced, and
(b) allows you to drop any packets with a source IP not in the list.
The mechanism you use to keep track of this info (post-it notes,
email, automated route-registry system, etc.) may be subject to
negotiation, but the underlying requirement should not be.
Ideally, you'd keep all this in a database and auto-generate BOTH
prefix filters (for the BGP session) AND packet filters (for the
interface) every time the customer registered a new route.
