You are right, currently Tor requires each node be able to talk to every
other node.  For servers there is no way to say they only want to talk
to some other servers.

Also, you can't configure different bandwidth limits based on
destination or source IP address, AS, or AS path, and I doubt that will
be added any time soon.
