Maybe as close as possible, but still without sacrificing source
network attribution is sufficient.

That depends on the problems caused by spoofed traffic.  My hunch is
that non-policing networks emit a constant trickle of spoofed traffic
which does not cause any problems, and that traffic can be used to
detect lack of policing even without actual abuse of the spoofing
