[aprssig] x1j nodes

I know that x1j digipeaters add a little something to the beginning of the
beacon text making a position packet not decode in any aprs client (used to in
DOS aprs, but not any more as I recall).

My question is this:  Instead of programming the beacon text to be the position,
why not program the beacon text to contain a 3rd party packet, and have the
encapsulated 3rd party packet actually contain the location of the digipeater? 
Would that be decodable by any aprs clients?
