To get microsecond-level timing, you have to be so close that you're
basically just peering with everyone.  And at that point you can just look
to see which fibers carry spoofed packets.

Once you know an ISP hasn't implemented BCP38, what'st the next step?
 De-peering just reduces your own visibility into the problem.  What if
it's a transit provider, who can be legitimately expected to route for 0/0?
