Good question... I'm not sure if that applies to all objects or how the various
end-user programs handle it. Loops? Duplicates are handled fine on the current
APRS-IS servers (javAPRSSrvr). That shouldn't be a problem. I'm sure someone
will have the answer. I got a little nervous when I was told that some programs
could over-ride the tags like TCP and TCPXX to allow gating.
