But if you've seen a BGP announcement with a prefix that covers the source, is it really a bogon anymore? At that point, you're not worrying about bogon filtering, you're worrying about sanity-checking what BGP advertisements you accept. Also a worthy thing to do, but different from bogon filtering.
