Great idea.  And true.  The object should be able to have a CSE/SPD so it
can be deadreckoned.
How about this format:


MESSAGE:  objname [/$]comment   <== for a fixed object

MESSAGE:  objname [/$CSE/SPD]comment <== for moving

For a DF format, I agree that a separate message to "DF" would trigger that
