[aprssig] conveying map view

Yes, but I don't know of a single APRS client that will allow you to either 1) specify by typing a view, 2)let you click on the contents of a message and specify a view automagically.  

Is there one that does?  It would really be neat if we could publish map views (ie bookmarks) just like we do objects.  New people arriving on the scene of an event would have within a few minutes, a list of common views.... ie downtown, the county... the event... and then if someone said "It's in the upper right corner of your map" we'd have a fighting chance to see what the guy is talking about.
