NOGATE/RFONLY are for igates, and they seem to be implemented quite well. 
They mean that the packets should not be gated on the APRS-IS at all.

!x! is *not* for igates, it is for findu, aprs.fi and other archiving 
systems, saying that although this packet can be transmitted on APRS-IS 
and can be received by APRS-IS in real time, it should not be archived in 
such databases, so that it could be looked up later. !x! should not be 
implemented by the igates.
