For the purpose of facilitating a workable APRS network
independent of software and platform, I can think of no 
better receipe for disaster than encouragning the picking 
and choosing of what is to be included or left out of a variety 
of APRS applications.  What we will end up with is that
users of different applications will see diffeerent things and
make it impossible for human-to-human unambiguous
interpretation of the data.  A further tower of babble will result.

I am not saying this in opposition to new code, but only
that the full spec should be implemented first before making
unique add-ons.  

Just my 2 cents.
