[aprssig] WLNK-1 via aprs-is?

It's a great system, and I bet it would get a lot more use if there were more bi-directional iGates around.  I understand it's personal preference on the part of the iGate operator, but is there a reason it's such a rarity?  I have mine set up to transmit, and have had no problems (that I know of, at least).  It's not a heavy duty cycle.
