Well, I tried, though reading it now, so long after writing it, I'm not sure I have it quite right.  I am open to recommendations for changing my document.  See Page 4:

Comcast appears to be getting ready to killing its personal web pages without telling anyone, so I don't know how long this will be a valid URL.

Fine. So how are users supposed to know this? Where in the APRS spec
does it say anything more specific than "use your best judgement"?

We've been finding examples of people making bad path choices and
bemoaning them on this mailing list for a decade, but how were they
supposed to know? If we don't give any specific guidance to users, how
can we expect them to always make their own choices that agree with
our judgement?
