why should it be bad to have 0 corruption. After all, it's only a relative
value, which means relevant is the effective trade output, not the
corruption level (for realism it may be different, but for realism we
could also incrase all trade by 1.5 and then make corruption 1/3 :))

that's definitly a point - against it, if you look at it. It's much
easier to connect cities if you just have to build one road in between,
