[aprssig] Digi "Location-Based" Callsigns and Objects

With all this talk of using location-based callsigns on digis, I thought
I'd experiment with changing mine. However, I want to ensure that I'm
doing it right, especially with regards to IDing correctly.
I'm using aprx on a Raspberry Pi, and I beacon a few repeater objects.
If I set the source call to my callsign on those object packets, that
will "break the link" - e.g., it will be coming from "KD8TWG-1" but my
digi will be beaconing itself as something different, so nobody will
have KD8TWG-1 in their lists.
I'm thinking I could put it in the comment? The thing is, I include the
repeater's callsign in the comment, so how would I avoid confusion
Here's one of my repeaters:
comment "146.940MHz T110 -060 W8DES"
My current thought is I could change the comment to:
comment "146.940MHz T110 -060 W8DES (de KD8TWG)"
