No, I'm not in agreement with that at all. Your compromise is less broken
than dropping all packets without a consumed hop, but I'm still not sold on
the value.

I'm asking why, when the boat is incidentally right next to a 145.825MHz
I-gate, we don't get to see its packets unless there happens to be a
satellite overhead. If the answer is just because traffic on the OSCAR
subband has to always have a satellite involved, then I'm just amazed we've
come up with another rule like the 300 baud limit on HF that limits the
flexibility of our license and I'll drop the issue.
