Based on feedback, I have revised the SSID suggestions to these:

-0 Primary station usually fixed and message capable
-1 Other station, or digipeater or mobile or anything
-2 Other station, or digipeater or mobile or anything
-3 Other station, or digipeater or mobile or anything
-4 Other station, or digipeater or mobile or anything
-5 From other networks (Dstar, Iphones, Blackberry's etc)
-6 Special event, Satellite ops, camping or 6 meters, etc
-7 walkie talkies, HT's or other human portable
-8 boats, sailboats, RV'sor second main mobile
-9 Primary Mobile of all types
-10 internet, Igates, etc
-11 balloons, aircraft, etc
-12 APRStt, DTMF, RFID, one-way trackers, devices, etc
-13 Weather stations
-14 Truckers or full time drivers
-15 General purpose for anything 

I added one-way trackers and other devices to -12, since that is
a meaningful category of devices that are one way...

I also freed up -15 for any other use.
