yes but even if semantics is not correct then this is the simplest 
solution to get the net tracable.

He is not an APRS mananger but a digital mananger so nodes, dstar etc is 
in this terminology.

And there was users introdusing the new WIDEn-N before the digital 
mananger tried to get one standard in Norway. And then i'm not speaking 
for myselves or LA6IM

Yes the net should be analyzed before the proposals and get some 
experience from other countries etc.

But one "united" setup would be better for all parts anyhow.

Using APRS via satelites is also an issue.
