This is really bad. It requires new code to support it, and adds
additional strange exceptions to already strange aircraft rules.
And I agree completely that this is a problem, because a flying dirigible
would enable the "bomber over mech inf" cheat much earlier in the game,
when you more likely do not have _any_ way to counteract it.

New special rules = Bad.
IIRC, we still do not have a dirigible graphics for trident and
isotrident. So that makes this discussion largely academic.
