What???! Wow, I'm glad this caught my eye. I have
not seen such discussions, but I am glad that you and
others quickly kill such lunacy. Position without
heading and speed is only half of situational awareness
ESPECIALLY on a low data rate channel.
I think such sentiments come about because so many
clients these days do not dead-reckon or otherwise
show movement between updates. So those users are
already blind to the dimension of space and time that
they dont know what they are missing.
