Agreed, and the argument in need for brand-specific symbols should  
apply to other things too...why not have 500 boat symbols, as there  
are at least 500 different kinds of boats, all with different  
capabilities, and sometime, somewhere, somehow, someone might need to  
know what the capabilities of a boat on an APRS display is.  ;)
