Yes.  We proposed it back in about 1985 or so for packet and since packet has died and since there are some crystal rigs still laying around in attics, why not go with it.  So all the digis and mobiles in the DC area are on 50.62.

And a friend bought over 100 6m 150W rigs on ebay an dfixes them up for 6m mobile.  They are midlands have up to 99 programmable channels, so they are great rigs.  He also puts tiny-tracks in them and sells them without a control head for purely mobile APRS.  I dont have his links with me, but google for 6m APRS and see what comes up.
