No it does not.  THe APRS1.1 addendum that
fought through all of this before, updated the
spec to current use and depricated the compressed 
objects because of all the problems it was causing.

The goal of the spec is to promote and insure
on-air compatibility, not to make programmers
jobs easy.  Maintaing compatibility is hard.  NO
denying it.  Witness this fiasco...
