But aprsc is an -IS server only. It can't be used as an I-gate in any
context.

Reaching a IGATE you can always confirm it later on.

There is a simpler method. Simply delay any directly heard packets 15
seconds when operating in satgate mode. If a local station successfully
digipeats, whether through you or through another satgate, then the
digipeated packet will make it to ariss.net before the directly heard
packet. Putting this into APRSC would make it useable as a satgate
everywhere.
