Is there a compelling reason you should allow this? If yes, you can't use
uRPF and you have to install an acl to do sanity checking on the
customer's source addresses. If no, they'll have to announce those routes
to you. If they set the no export community they still won't get any
inbound traffic to speak of.

Well if these are your worst abusers, it seems to me uRPF is exactly what
those customers need. ;-)
