... only after retracting/rolling back parts of the spec,  
apparently.  That doesn't quite fit my idea of "compatible", but it  
does make me think of the old joke: How many Microsoft employees does  
it take to change a light bulb?  None - they redefine darkness as the  
industry standard.

I personally would like to see more effort in actual advancements to  
APRS, and less effort keeping everything frozen in time so that we're  
backwards compatible with 10 or 20 year old designs.
