If you have allocated APYxxx to Yaesu, it might be a good idea to keep it 
that way, as APYAGx will be detected by Yaesu by many.

APGTxx would be free, it would give more than 10 version numbers, and 
would avoid the requirement to come up with a second identifier when 
firmware version 11 comes out (which would slow down detections as the 
database grows unnecessarily, and add to the work load of everyone 
maintaining detection code and adding these detections manually).

It would be really neat to have these maintained and published in a 
machine-readable format somewhere so that it would be easy to keep 
detections up-to-date.
