those kinds of paths where common in the early days of the european 
network, the idea was that it would get canceled by colision if it 
entered a crowded area but otherwise kept going, that was before the 
introduction of igates so that was the only way to get as much 
interesting data on the air as posible.
some of these dx paths are still around but they are infrequent enough 
not to do much harm and serve a good indication that conditions are up 
somewhere along the way. Still they are nolonger encouraged because the 
igates can get a message with the position packet to whereever you need 
it to go.

offcourse in wall to wall trafic like you guys have any reduction helps.
