It sounded (to me) like there were folk at 2-3 large providers looking for
this community configuration to be available 'now'. I figured once things
hit standard/code/test&deploy we'd would have 2-3 large providers trying to
offer this community mapping for their customer's uses.

maybe? I suppose if the provider(s) start offering this option and you as a
customer want to use it... you'll find out quickly: "Oops! I should
upgrade" (which you'd have to do anyway to take advantage of this community
mapping system.. at which point you'd also probably get away from the squat
problem).
