A quick review may indicate that they is in specific geographic locations 
where this "might" be an acceptable practice due to low UI traffic.  It 
really could be a practical application in some cases.  I know it's been 
tested to work AOK in low traffic conditions.  If the TNC's are working 
right and the channel is not booked solid, they could co-exsist.
I would not do that here, but in a pinch with limited equipment, etc., I do 
see the possibilities in other areas.
Some TNC's can easily handle both digi and uidigi without much of a problem.
