In OpenBGPD our default is to propagate communities; normal, extended,
and large.

We have no intention on changing that default.

Additionally, I see no reason why implementations should be have
identical defaults.  Cisco is not OpenBGPD, OpenBGPD is not Huewai, and
Huewai is not Quagga.

This is implementation specific, and has nothing to do with the
standardization process.

I am so optimistic about beef prices that I've just leased a pot roast
with an option to buy.
