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.
