Another naive question from the peanut gallery - can one actually do 
loose source routing with _hosts_  as the IPs in the list rather than 
routers?  Or perhaps I should say with "customer hosts?"  I ask because 
elsewhere it is suggested (as a BCP I think) that ISP's should 
filter-out IP datagrams coming from (customer) hosts attached to their 
networks which have as their source IP an IP that isn't part of the 
ISP's network.  This to deal with source IP address spoofing...
