Actually, come to think about it.. that is a very common
symbol...   Hummh... Maybe APRS should have one.  We could  use
it for toxic spills or APRS pirates...  Anyway, I am willing to
consider adding a "skull and crossbones" ...  My suggestion is
to add it to the HAZARDOUS alternate symbol using an overlay of
X.  So "XH" would decode to skull&crossbones...

I updated the overlay web page:
