Mine Tier 1 up-streams are fine with it permanent. YMMV. I did have to get
my account team involved, but from a technical perspective, a one line
policer (all UDP rate-limit to 10% of link speed) is not a technical
challenge, and the one-off config element is not overly burdensome.
Again, YMMV. And, your frequency and impact of IPv4 UDP based attacks will
dictate your needs.
