I don't think I implied anything of the sort.

I did, however, pipe up when a BCP is mentioned that I endorse,
and co-authored -- and likewise, cannot figure out for life of
me, why there is such push-back from the Ops community on doing
The Right Thing.

Having said that, botnets don't need to spoof addresses -- the
sheer dispersion of geographic and AS infection base renders the
whole point of spoofing almost moot.

And having said that, it doesn't make BCP 38 any less valid.
