Actualy most objects should be from digipeaters with no path to limit
the air time used by transmitting them.

Also not everywhere transmitting with anything other then a hamcall is
allowed so it can not legaly be a global recomendation.

I also fail to see the use for it, you already know what area you are
going trough and kenwood radios already display the distance and
direction so all the info is already known.
Using geographical callsigns is wastings information space.
