Some are, some are not.  One digi I depend on is apparently RELAY only. 
  A couple have changed, a couple are still R/W/Wn.

Because if there are few, it makes it even more important to use an 
alias that those few recognize.

I certainly don't mean to talk bad about new N-n (I think it's a great 
improvement), but it isn't 100% deployed yet.  The best thing you can 
do is try switching to W2-2 or W3-3 and see if your coverage remains 
the same.
