It is implemented many places in fact.

I will argue you are confused.

Assume every network in the usa implements bcp38.
This simply means no spoofs source from usa. Every packet is sent from the
usa using a valid origin.
Assume also 50% of networks in Europe and Asia and the Southern Hemisphere
do bcp38 too.
The result is the needle has not moved at all.
CC nodes in the non bcp38 locations will send spoofed packets destinations
is comcast and att with a source of krebs.
Result? Comcast and att cpe responds with crap to krebs. Ddos success
despite bcp38 in all of usa.
