I believe you have hit upon a novel idea that has a lot of merit, its time
has come.

1) Implementing RFC 2827 (ingress filtering) and RFC 2644 (disabling
   directed broadcast) is more than just a nice idea. These are both BCPs,
   since they both represent methods for limiting damage to the Internet.

2) When negotiating contracts with downstream clients, perhaps adding
     language that insists on implementation of these would be worthwhile?

 I believe this is in everyones best interest and a very worthwhile pursuit.

The documents were written and given BCP status so that the community
can refer to them and hopefully increase the number of sites that comply.
Thank you;
