So you might not allow a customer to break up your block, but you haven't
said that you wouldn't allow a customer to announce a fragmented block
belonging to someone else, supposing this other party does not share
your policy.

You're going to have to exempt multihomed downstream customers from your
anti spoofing filters anyway, whether they use your space, someone else's
or their own. To put it another way, if you have clueful downstreams,
you should delegate anti spoofing to them, they will do it closer to
the edge where there is no asymetrical routing.
