[aprssig] APRS on UHF?

A question came to mind today to a couple of us on the way to work...  Why hasn't aprs
standardized on UHF?  Being on the uhf bands would resolve many of the issues for mobile
installations (ie de-sense to other 2m radios, car stereos, etc)...  True the coverage
wouldn't be quite as long distanced, but the uhf bands seem to be a lot less used, and
commercial uhf hardware is available cheaply and in abundance which could be easily
modified for this sort of use...
