I can't imagine why uRPF/loose would be problematic. If you're originating
traffic from prefix which you're not advertising to DFZ and you still expect
it to work, your expectation are at fault, not uRPF/loose.

However uRPF/strict feasible won't work, while occasionally some people seem
to think it does.
