It seems to be up to the APRS client, and who knows how each one
of them implemented it. And these are only sent once.  If there
is a collision, you will never see it.  So that is why I
completely abandoned them as a reliable means of "showing
someone something"...

Hence the idea for the new ITEM-IN-MESSAGE format.
