This is a good step, but I think that considerably more control is
needed, either at this level or a level above.  I'd like to be able to
filter advertisements by source and prefix.  For example, if my site
has native IPv6, I'd like to be able to exclude 2002:xxx -- 6to4 --
which are sometimes emitted by personal machines that I don't want to
route through.
