I have no doubt that it's smaller than some, but there are a few folks
that use it.

This is certainly not the first format that's fallen for that trick. It
went unnoticed for a longer time in those formats.
Geocachers, who are a large part of our base, tend to not notice bozoed
elevation becuase there's no elevation in their source data and they're
just spraying waypoints to the unit. Only later when they they try
to analyze their tracks (which is usually done by the vendors own
software and thus doesn't involve GPSBabel anyway) does elevation become
interesting to most of that crowd.
