Remember, with at least one of the tools you can trigger the "slaves" via forged ICMP reply messages. It doesn't take a fat pipe to do that and it makes finding the perp that much harder, especially since dial connections are generally more anonymous. Yes, we have tested "source validation" in our live dial network. Yes, there is a performance impact. "Can do" or "Can't do" depends on how many dial customers you are trying to pile into one box, and what equipment you are using. Also, ingress filtering one-hop-up isn't necessarily so easy. Some of us will dynamically route prefixes other than /32 to certain dial customers. This complicates things.
