Yes it is, because both the 'From' callsign and the Object name are in 
known locations, and it is possible (but a pain in the neck) to 
sepparate all the identical Objectnames by pairing them with the 'From' 
callsign, that is, the owner of the Object.

This is NOT possible if the 'From' callsign is a non-unique name, and 
the actual 'From' callsign is added somewhere in a non-standard location 
in the Information field.

And note that, if a Station would also use this system, and it transmits 
an Object, than it becomes even more nasty to try to find out to whom an 
Object belongs to. However, I think Bob just wanted to do it with 
Digipeaters... but then, where is the limit?
