[hfsig] What can you do with an OFDM signal in a 3.5 KHz band pass?

Raw data rates of up to 12800 kbps have available commercially for a number of
years now using standard HF SSB rigs. There are several products available
using MIL-STD-188-110B waveforms an example is http://www.rapidm.com/rm6.shtml 
Sure they drop down to lower speed if the path isn't great, but on many paths
the higher rates are viable.

However, I am not aware of any Amateur implementation of these waveforms, has
anybody tried ? For some of our HF bands I believe there are valid arguments
for resticting b/w to 1.8 kHz or less but for 28 MHz there is no reason why 3.5
kHz or 7.5 kHz shouldn't be used.
