I'm in agreement here.  One of my biggest complaints over the years of 
travelling with my D7 in my truck is that I generally have to adjust my 
path at several points along my trip to get it to work correctly.  
Because Southern California currently does not support RELAY or WIDE 
(I'm working to get that changed), I have to run WIDE2-2 in my mobile 
here.  But, if I travel north or east, I may need to change to RELAY or 
WIDE at some point along the trip.  As a mobile station, I want to set 
RELAY,WIDE and be done with it and not have to worry about changing it 
at any point.  The other advantage over using RELAY,WIDE is that if the 
digis are set properly (and most of them are), the digi callsign 
replaces the RELAY and/or the WIDE and you can see your packet path 
later.  This is not happening with XXXXn-N.
