Actually, that choice alienates a bunch of hams assisting with an event 
that may not have APRS RF capability but COULD remain aware of the 
overall situation via an APRS-IS client filtered to the local area to 
avoid any potential interference from duplicate tactical calls.  You 
might as well keep all your packets 7 bytes shorter (the length of a 
path component in the AX.25 header) and let the APRS-IS do whatever it 
wills with the tactically-named stations' packets.
