I think you overlooked a number of points.

CWOP went to the CWOP network because it's a system independent from
amateur radio. Echolink is a part of amateur radio. The Echolink
objects proposed to be posted to APRS are all RF links. Yes, this is
radio. (And yes, not all of Echolink is radio)

APRS is made up of 1200baud RF networks, 9600baud RF networks, and the
internet. I mostly use the 9600 baud RF myself. Don't forget about us!

In my car? No, I don't have internet there. But I do have APRS.
