Path is too long for where?   A path that's too long for Seattle
is appropriate and necessary in Montana.   It's a regional problem.

Going beyond manually enter hop counts to "pseudo paths" like
LOCAL, REGION and WORLD (or whatever...) would allow the
local systems to handle the packets and the users wouldn't have to
worry about this trivia.   It's time to get past this minutiae and move on.
