Yes, these are the kinds of problems we are trying to solve 
with the New n-N Paradigm.  The W5-5 beacons from that
one digi in the remote location might be easy to fix at adjacent
digis.  Just have those adjacent digis TRAP the WIDE5-5
(like they are supposed to do under the New n-N Paradigm)
and the problem is solved without a trip to the 5-5 site.

And if the surrounding digis cannot TRAP 5-5, then the
next tier out can add 5-4 to their trapping list until someone
gets to the original site to change its beacon path and

That was the main advantage and goal of the New n-N 
Paradigm, was to give digi sysops the tools to manage
their local area, without having to be completely dependent
on user education and begging the users to fix their paths.
