Let me clarify...We are only talking here about the existing
APRS and KPC-3+ telemetry format.  Any user can use this format
for any values he wants now.  All this effort is trying to do is
to tabluate any existinc comon uses, so that others can chose
from among many existing parameter selections used by others so
as to not have to re-invent each new wheel for each new
application if someone already is using such a format.

Ah, but that is why we are proposing this initiative.  As it is,
The KPC-3+ format is fixed and cannot be changed and nothing 
Can be added to the end of it.  Hence, the use of the "version
Number" in the TOCALL  format to specify a specific common
(if any)...

Can you send an example packet so we can see the format?
We will add that to the list...
