Of course. The group the reverse igate would subscribe to would be the one they want to. There maybe some defaults that could be done at higher levels. Others such as state, or metro area. Or not at all. The idea is to empower the reverse igate owner with reduced time needed to install and maintain such a gate. Lets face it, nothing will ever be 100%

What is reasonable and proper for one area may be way too much or decidedly not enough for other areas.  There is no central committee for APRS that would work planet-wide AFAIK.

I have seen no way to determine channel loading nor coverage area in an automated fashion.  RF conditions are just too variable and the packet origination load is a complete unknown.
