If I can tag an RTBH community on a /32, what's the additional lost revenue
in letting me be more granular and get down to the specific flows I want
"drop all traffic to x/32" would drop *more* traffic than "drop any traffic
from address y to x/32, protocol TCP, port n".

What now? Unless I'm misunderstanding what you're saying, it's right in
A flow specification NLRI must be validated such that it is
considered feasible if and only if:
a) The originator of the flow specification matches the originator of
the best-match unicast route for the destination prefix embedded
in the flow specification.
b) There are no more specific unicast routes, when compared with the
flow destination prefix, that have been received from a different
neighboring AS than the best-match unicast route, which has been
determined in step a).
By originator of a BGP route, we mean either the BGP originator path
attribute, as used by route reflection, or the transport address of
the BGP peer, if this path attribute is not present.
The underlying concept is that the neighboring AS that advertises the
best unicast route for a destination is allowed to advertise flow-
spec information that conveys a more or equally specific destination
prefix. Thus, as long as there are no more specific unicast routes,
received from a different neighboring AS, which would be affected by
that filtering rule.
The neighboring AS is the immediate destination of the traffic
described by the flow specification. If it requests these flows to
be dropped, that request can be honored without concern that it
represents a denial of service in itself. Supposedly, the traffic is
being dropped by the downstream autonomous system, and there is no
added value in carrying the traffic to it.
