Is it not 8 bit clean so that KISS could be used?  A regional TNC server is in my mind where DSTAR radios could be used 
to connect to software such as yours that would forward each packet received on through the APRS-IS.  With a different 
(other than 0) device number, RF routing might be selected etc.
