Based on Bob's recommendation to send these objects direct from the repeater 
site itself, they should most likely not end up in the APRS-IS unless heard 
direct by an I-Gate.  So it will be a mix of some there and some not.

Applications connecting to the APRS-IS and using large area or "objects-only" 
kinds of filtering, will in fact see these objects jump around on the map, 
making it difficult to use APRS-IS information as a "planning" guide for 
frequency use.
