In fact, autonomous system diversity in a Tor circuit is a wonderful 
thing, for better anonymity against pseudo-global adversaries (such as 
ISP's).  Then, different ISP's would have to collude to short circuit a 
Tor tunnel.  Just be careful of those Internet eXchanges, as IX level 
adversaries can [probabilistically]  short circuit Tor's tunnels.
