I cant think of one.  2-1 was a necessity.  But I dont see any others.
 Though of course evrey packet after the first digipeat satisfies the
fact that 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?
