Regarding global BGP community values

Here is a sketch of the new well-known communities I have come
up with:

0xFFFn:arg

You should attempt to implement it; I suspect that its not going
to be easy.

If you want this to go forward, I suggest that you draft configs
for a number of router types (cisco, juniper, gated).

I also suggest that you draft configs for everyone else to do if
they just want to let these new communities through without acting
on them. Remember that communities are dropped by default - unless
you configure your routers to let them through.

More and more ISP allow communities through; and anyway the idead to allow
the couter treat some part of community as an _arg_ is a very interesting
(at least for the future implementations and/or protocols).

That depends on the vendor. Cisco does not send
communities by default, whereas Juniper does...
