 >As far as Andre's UDP "non-APRS-IS network", that is great as long as 
those packets on RF don't make it back to APRS-IS.
 >If they do, then you have loops like we had 10 years ago. There is a 
reason for the third-party packet format requirements as well as the 
intra-APRS-IS path requirements.
 >Even if you set your "isolated" network, if there is a path back to 
APRS-IS, you risk significant loops if you don't follow the specifications.

Don't excisting igates already block loops between eachother?
In my proposal because it is digipeater based, loops are already 
filtered out by dupechecking, digined does not process any packet it has 
in it's dupe buffer, has the digicall in the path as been digied or has 
the digicall as sender.
excisting specs already work for paralel vhf and uhf networks.
