What effect is this flood of proposed symbol 
changes/re-assignments/overlays going to have on the Kenwood APRS radios?  

I assume we can make them encode most of the new symbols if you select 
"Other" in the symbol-select dialog and then enter the letter or number 
from an APRS symbol "cheat sheet".   Not to mention that I don't think 
many mobiles will want to show up as a fog bank, severe wind or other 
weather report.

I am wondering what will happen when these radios RECEIVE posits with 
currently unused symbol codes and heretofor unused overlay codes 
embedded in APRS posits.....
