That is to trap long paths. It will give one hop to beacons with a
WIDE4-4 etc. path and they will end there. However, the recommendation
is to allow WIDE7-7 in case someone ever really needs a long path.

Note that Travis also said...


The UIFLOOD AR,30,ID  is so it will do SSn-n (state flooding) and the
UITRACE,WIDE,30 is to allow it to respond to WIDEn-N.

Take a look at http://nwaprs.info/widen-n.htm ad I think you will see 
that the settings that Travis is using are the currently accepted ones - 
except he is trapping WIDE7-7. However, it never hurts to look and 
question. It means that you are learning!
