I should hope so.

Disabling source routing is shooting the messenger.  The problem is not
source routing; the problem is daemons that make security decisions
based on peer IP addresses.  Disabling source routing is like blocking
ICMP in order to stop ping-of-death DoS - the right thing to do is fix
the bugs, not paper over the holes.
