As usual you explicated my point better than I could. Just as you need reasonably powerful tools to filter route announcements, you need *at least* a binary setting to determine whether or not to propagate and/or act on these additional attributes, and preferably better tools to modify them too. While community handling is there, the tools to make it useful are not. Thus removing any of the "well it's here now" advantages. -- Alex Bligh GX Networks (formerly Xara Networks)
