I wanted to thank everyone for both their online and offline replies.

I've pinged someone offline who may have a contact.   Will let you know
offline if I do and connect you.   I had some peripheral insight a few
years ago when I did some work with Boeing.  Even had a hand at editing
some ARINC standards.  The airline industry was umm....interesting :)
Suffice to say the guy I was working with at Boeing was pushing hard for
v6 capability within ARINC and this was 2007.  Keep fingers crossed.
