The only thing about taking out those ?-1 aliases is then they're left as
artifacts in the path history indicating the original excessive path.
WIDE7-1 becomes N5IN-4*,WIDE7 instead of being "disappeared" completely like
when they're included in the ALIAS= where then WIDE7-1 becomes only N5IN-4*

A N5IN-4 "W2,MNn" digi could use either
(?-1's left out)
(?-1's left in)
