Agree with you.  SSn-N is similar to WIDEn-N except that the packets
roughly stop at state/province/country borders.  Useful for
targeting specific areas without bleeding over into adjacent areas.

Home fill-in digi's shouldn't normally be a part of SSn-N routing.
It's up to the new-paradism WIDEn-N hilltops to do this stuff.
