Just for a different data point here.
My TNCs will all run KISS mode just fine. However, I have yet to see any 
software that supports my main home TNC properly in KISS mode. I believe 
I've seen some software that supports 2 ports, but mine has 3....

So, if you're gonna say "KISS mode only" then do it right.

However, even if you do that I probably still wouldn't use it as the system 
has automatic APRS beaconing set up and functions as a gateway node too. 
All of that gets disabled if I have to put it in KISS mode.
