[aprssig] Mic-E encoding on HF -- does generic SSID path GATE?

If you are referring to SSID routing, the only TNC that implemented 
this idea were the Kenwoods, and so for the last several years we
have abandoned that proposal.  It only made sense back when
we were using long paths or private networks.  Now that most areas 
of the country are using only 2 hops, the advantage of SSID routing
is obsolete... and no longer receommended.     de WB4APR

The "Generic APRS digipeater path" encoded in the Destination SSID includes
all the paths typically used on VHF (WIDE1-1 and up) but it doesn't include
a SSID for "GATE".

Is GATE implied on HF as a matter of configuration at the receiving station?
Or does HF APRS need to use dest SSID-0 and encode the GATE,WIDE* path
