While it's a neat idea..... packet audio is muted for use with voice alert.
Also, you forfeit the smart beaconing of the T2. Not that either of these
are deal breakers.... You know, sometimes when I plug my d700 in, it comes
on, and other times it does not... something in the PM modes, but I'm just
not sure what. Sure would be nice if the T2 power switch option would auto
turn on my d700 at the power jack as soon as my GPS gets a fix.

In theory there is no difference between practice and theory.
