I think creating a standard or at least a template might push more 
people to adopt communities support and to use them. There are 
definitely times it is useful to redirect traffic 2 ASN's away through a 
longer route. In some cases (like my small self, I try to adopt policies 
that allow communities to me to also be rewritten to the corresponding 
peers communities to alter things as far as 3 ASN's away from my customer.
