That was my point presented in a backhanded way.  APRS seems to be  
driven by the lowest common denominator.  Can't do X because the  
Kenwood can't handle it.  Can't do Y because UI-View won't support  
it.  Can't do Z because hams won't change their 20 year old digi  
hardware.

Net result IMO?  APRS is isn't nearly as used and useful as it could  
be because of the dead weight dragging it down.  I find it rather  
discouraging.

my rather cynical $0.02...
