I probably should give my version of a solution a name because it is NOT 
aprs-is based but a seperate network in paralel specialy for gateways 
wanting to let internet users gate to rf with controll over their path 
within the limits the gateway owner has set and that could lead to 

Maybe aprs-udp is a good name because the transport layer is axudp based 
and as far as the specs are concerned it is just another rf network like
