In general , yes sending this objects from an IGATE would not be
desireable.  I wouldn't go so far as to say bad, but..... you have no
control of the path the igate uses, so your packet would cover an area wider
that you expect / want / need.  Also, more than one igate might send your
packet and lastly, the igate would encapsulate your packet inside it's own
and make the original packet longer on the air.
