But what? Are you somehow implying that because BCP38 was
"...published 14 years ago" (RFC2267 was initially published in 1998,
and it was subsequently replaced by RFC2827)?

I hope not, because  BCP38 filtering would still help stop spoofed
traffic now perpetuating these attacks, 14 years after BCP38 was
published, because spoofing is at the root of this problem
(reflection/amplification attacks).

This horse is not dead, and still deserves a lot of kicking.
