[aprssig] Simplified New n-N for Users

I'd suggest this be simplified further...   Make _one_ standard

WIDE2-2 works for mobiles as it does for everybody else.

If we're seriously attempting to get this to actually become something that
most users can relate to and will cooperate with, then leave it at WIDE2-2
for everybody and call it good.  It will be a great accomplishment and a
major success to get a majority of users on board even to this extent.  Of
course, there are things we'd like to add, education we'd like to impart,
fine points that can improve certain situations, but unfortunately
_anything_ more confusing than just "WIDE2-2 for all" detracts from
successfully conveying the main message of the new paradigm.  KISS.
