I also believe that we need a standard for the SSID's what ever it may 
be.  I know there are a number of stations out there that support many 
digi's with there calls on them. so there will be stations using ssid's 
that dont conform but most will have the proper icon with them.  so if we 
set up  2 ssids for mobile use 1 for TX and 1 for RX  then we will know who 
could or could not accept a message.
