Sure, but again, consider the recent DNS amplifier attacks and
filter circumvention attacks (using spoofing to send UCE).

I'd be interested in seeing more references on the SPAM-spoofing. I assume you refer to hijacking an address space (possibly a bogon, possibly in use), sending spam, and switching the prefix continously. This is quite different than 'traditional' spoofing because above also requires propagation of false routing information instead of simply sending bogus packets.
