I was actually just discussing this with Hessu a few weeks ago as to
whether this was a valid assumption or not. I know that at least in Aprx we
don't perform any filtering based on PID. Should we be?

There has not been a clear mandate for I-gate software to filter on the
PID, so I wouldn't be surprised if that feature is rare.

So what? Any APRS-IS servers which have difficulty handling an additional
9600bps on their -IS stream have no business being an APRS-IS server. Worst
case this thins the herd and we no longer have such an overkill of APRS-IS
servers.
