[aprssig] Msg reply path

On a tangent from this, is there ever a reason to _initiate_ a message with either a WIDEn-N or SSn-N alias where N < n? I've seen cases like WiDE1-1,WIDE2-1, but are there any other cases that make sense (except possible smart reverse-pathing where it is obvious that the whole n wasn't needed)? Should digis that support SSn-N also support SSm-M where 1 <= m < n?

Just a thought to stir the pot.

 But that doesn't fix the fundamental flaw of lacking the decaying-rate retry 
 algorithm that makes more efficient use of the channel.
 (This can be fixed by using the UIview plugin  "UI-Instant Messenger", a 
 replacement messaging client for UIview,  that DOES do the decaying routine
