What ever happened to that project?  Attaching to a specific set of APRS-IS servers seems like a much more effective way to filter the network than to try and pattern match stations by *any* metric suggested.

I don't remember that ever being a serious proposal, I certainly don't support that. Even if I missed the proposal, it is a lot of work, no one has stepped forward, and even if someone did create a separate APRS-sat IS you need the compliance of all the satgate operators to QSY, which would get back into the issue of requiring changes from a lot of people to get the desired result.
