Source address-based filtering in the backbone is expensive and, in manyAnd, of course, unnecessary. Everything in the core must have gotten there over a border towards some external network or an edge towards a customer (counting own servers and stuff as "customer" too) so if filtering is done there, no need to repeat it in the core.
BTW, from what I can tell on a pretty old/slow Cisco box, uRPF makes packet forwarding take about 10% more CPU, which is the same as a short standard access list (which can only look at source addresses). A short extended access list takes around 20% more CPU.
