<tangent> How viable is it to spoof an IP on a TCP connection going  
across the Internet where MITM isn't possible without compromising

I see people throw around the spoofed IP FUD, but have yet to see it  
be an issue with TCP connections off of a LAN. The only thing I've  
seen it used maliciously for outside of a single network segment  
environment is for UDP packet floods. </tangent>
