Would it be "reasonable" or a mistake to have an IGate that can detect 
these ItemInMessage that is being gated to RF based on the existing 
rules and actually convert it to an Item packet over RF?  Assuming that 
the messages are generated by individuals, if the IGate did this, and 
still forwarded the message as well, the recipient would be notified of 
the transmission, and the Item would be visible (assuming the radios 
actually parse Items correctly as I believe they do Objects).
