I voted Yes. The only lines that I have experienced so far that exceeded 80 characters were XSTATUS coming from a device to our LMS. I don't believe that we are breaking anything with this new extension. I don't think anyone will start sending 255 character LTYPEs immediately with this new standard version. I think we are merely allowing for newer fields - which existing systems and machines won't be able to handle yet, anyway - to send up to this new limit of characters.
