It seems most providers don't bother tuning routes unless there's congestion. i.e., proactive attempts to find lower-latency paths are rare. It also seems the people who use selective prepends really like them. I give stronger recommendations for providers who offer selective prepends... it appears people generally are oblivious to its existence, but become intrigued when they learn of it.
