The problem with that is that it takes less signal to make a PL tone decoder
trigger than to decode a packet.  In other words, I can hear you on voice
alert alot more times that I can decode ax.25 packets.  In theory what you
suggest would work just as well, but in practice the PL tone wins hands

In theory there is no difference between practice and theory.
