No. We are trying to simplify APRS, not add back
complexity. There are 4 reasons why we dont need this:
1) It is unnecessary complexity we dont need
2) Users of SSn-N are typically base stations with
meaningful traffic for a state-net, not mobiles
3) Mobiles cross state lines and the whole advantage
of the WIDEn-N path is that it works everywhere.
4) FILL-IN digis in many cases can only support one
ALIAS. Hence "WIDE1-1"...
