I would agree but there is already a way around it, for aplications like 
this a axudp based network instead of a text based network does work, 
the igate just acts like a xband digipeater, they all connect to one or 
more others just like on aprs-is and dupechecking keeps the chaos under 
controll, digipeaters can digipeat unaltered paths without setting has 
been digied bits back to other gate digipeaters and only digipeats to 2 
meter where the next digicall is theirs.
The clients for this system will just have to select the nearest 
digipeater for the path.

probably could program digined on linux to do this in one evening maybe 
even one hour.
