No, but there are many (practically all, I would guess)  that put the
altitude immediately after the position.

The standard says it can go anywhere in the comment.

If the altitude is immediately after the position, it meets spec.

If the altitude is not immediately after the position, it breaks D700
and D7 altitude parsing.  (D700/D7 don't meet spec!)

The only problem here is either a broken spec for the Tnnn
designation, or broken firmware in the D710 (or maybe both).
