Once a "universal" path can be agreed upon as working for most
cases, then the confusion factor will go way down.  It's the getting
there that's confusing.

I can't see using WIDE2-2 as a path in my area.  We'd get no boost
from the home stations, and in my case it's essential.  The areas
you're talking about are probably quite different topographically
and/or in terms of user-base.
