[aprssig] Polite to TX-igate weather warnings?

I've been running a digipeater and TX igate using aprx. I have been
playing with transmitting the objects produced by the AE5PL-WX server
(just CLESVR and CLETOR), for severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings
from my local NWS office.
My question is this: Is this a polite thing to do on RF?
On the one hand, I can see some value in it - mobile stations will be
alerted to weather warnings and fixed RF-only stations would be able to
see the polygons on the map. The downside is that it looks like these
packets are pushed onto -IS every 5 minutes, so that means my igate
could theoretically end up transmitting a lot of packets on a busy
weather night, since the CLE office is responsible for 30 counties.
What are everyone's thoughts on this?
