Instead of using two different content's one after the other, how about
something like contentpattern with -extra simplified- regexp capability.

It seems like what is done with the above rule is nothing more than a
simple regexp match (the content, nocase and within stuff). 

Regarding the 'distance' keyword. It sounds more like TTL stuff (sensor
to target host distance in terms of hops) to me...
