This could already be done with the original modem design, you just need a 
DFE in the receiver.
This is done e.g. in the ALEF NULL project (see PAM-Signaling) 

The problem is: if you have a transceiver with bad DC response a receiver 
with DFE could still be used. But nobody we a "normal" receiver can copy 
your signal well. So you better go and improve your TX to be "compatible"...
I would perhaps make sense to have something like that in the receiver of 
the digipeater to allow the users to have a bad DC response.
Question is: is anybody still interested in 9k6 anyway :-(
