I believe that's a temporary successful response that will be changing 
to an Item-As-Message describing the actual object created/updated by 
the request.  I just suggested to Charlie as well that KILL respond with 
an Item-As-Message with the kill flag set.

Since the Item-As-Message is a standard APRS Item packet in the message 
text, the coordinates will be APRS-standard, albeit scrunched together 
on today's radios.  (Page 59 of aprs101.pdf for those not familiar with 
the Item packet format).
