I can give a couple of valid reasons for this:
- in practice there are never too many properly working (= doesn't touch 
packet contents) listen-only igates, because they don't transmit on the 
band and duplicates are automatically filtered on the Internet-side
- two-way igates might require special permits to operate unattended, in 
Finland they are called automatic station licenses
- you don't have to choose what to gate to RF if you don't gate 
anything. Some igate software don't offer much configurability on what 
to gate to RF.
