Keith, thanks for your patience.

I guess I haven't made myself clear on this point, or maybe I'm not 
seeing the obvious!

 DigiNed will in effect become a (very) low-level digi once the remote 
system is installed. DigiNed will provide the only path to the remote 
digi for UIView and Xastir, neither of which will have radios attached.  
The only (APRS) radio that will be attached to the system once the 
remote digi is installed will be low power (1W) to a beam directed at 
the remote digi. I don't envisage many, if any, mobiles accessing the 
WIDE1-1 due to my location away from the highway, the low elevation of 
the site and the antenna, and the heavy foliage around me.

DigiNed will remain exactly where it is now as part of my Linux system 
and an additional UIDigi will be installed as the remote system.

This is why I believe that I need DigiNed to run as WIDE1-1.
