	It's not spoofing when you are using addresses assigned to you.

	Such edge sites have a small range of alternate addresses.
	Both access providers would have the filters on this link
	set to accept both ranges of addresses.

	Nothing in BCP38 says that you can't source traffic with
	addresses that are assigned to you.  It says to block address
	that are not assigned to you.

	If anything breaks it is because inappropriate filters were
	applied.  I would suggest that anyone wishing to deploy
	BCP38 start off with allow rather than deny initially and
	see which filter rule is being hit and follow up to see if
	the filter needs to be broadened.
