Anything is possible if someone wanted to set up a separate network
for it. However, while I understand the reasoning behind the request
(which is often also requested by terrestrial operators wanting to see
how far their packets travelled) what you are asking for has no value
in the context of the primary purpose of APRS so there is no reason
for the existing network to support it.

If you were considering delaying packets to avoid the de-duplication
mechanism I'm sure a lot of people would have something to say about
that. :)
