Unless your single homed customer who is buying internet access circuits (no BGP) from you, on a single link, happens to be receiving simplex downstream from someone else, and only wants to use you to provide the upstream.

Not as common these days, but those of us who remember Ku-band satellite internet access will have memories of horrifying outages caused by people turning on strict RPF without thinking about it first.  :-)
