What does BCP38 have to do with this?  All that does is block one 
specific type of attack (and cause a lot of collateral damage).  The IoT 
devices do not need to spoof addresses - they can just generate attack 
traffic directly.  This is even better, because you can't cut those 
eyeball addresses off - those are the same addresses your target 
audience is using.  If you cut off the eyeball networks there's not much 
point to running an internet business website anymore.
