OSPF : Outbound filtering

If you read/see videos about OSPF, it will be said that you can only filter on INBOUND or 1/0 on OUTBOUND (via ip ospf database-filter all out / neighbor x.x.x.x database-filter all out).
You will say to me, no problem I can filter by means of “area range xxxxx not-advertise” (LSA Type 3) or “summary-address xxxx no-advertise” (LSA Type 5).
Ok, now let’s say, I want with distribute-list and ACL, you filter out some routes ?

You could do this as :

R1(config-router)#distribute-list 10 out connected
R1(config-router)#do sh run | sec router
router ospf 1
 no capability transit
 area 14 nssa
 summary-address not-advertise
 summary-address not-advertise
 network area 0
 network area 14
 network area 0
 neighbor database-filter all out
 distribute-list 10 out connected
 distance 255 41

And you could do more :

R1(config-router)#distribute-list 10 out ?
