Because of all the 16 SSID's those two are the two most common
ones that have been in use for the last 18 years and there is no
reason to expect them to change (hams hate change).  Further,
there are some -9's that are sometimes more clueless than some
of the -14's professionals and so it is nice to instantly see
the difference...

For me too.  Imagine how many stations I have, both at work
(education) and at home..  There are not nearly enough SSID's
for me... But I manage...

And there are 16 available.  So I don't see any problem.  Just
pick some from the standard list and use them.  Oh, Ill add (and
others) to the -1, through -4 so that one should have no problem
using those for extra mobiles if they want...
