Yes, it would be great if more repeaters were represented by APRS-IS 
objects so they're visible on various web sites. Repeater owners don't 
seem very interested in advertising their repeaters this way 
unfortunately. Naturally it would be great if repeater objects were put 
on RF with coverage comparable to the repeater they describe.

I suppose a smart repeater could periodically switch to the APRS 
frequency and transmit the object if the repeater when not in use, 
assuming it's a 2m repeater, of course. I doubt most repeaters have this 
capability but it would be a way to avoid having to install another 
radio and antenna at the repeater site.
