I like the way it is defined, with a few tiny extensions:

better (my head unit has got 10 direct disc buttons):
- 0xA0-0xA9 button n (1-10)
- 0xAA-0xAF reserved

still missing:
- 0xB4 give track title (return payload tbd)
- 0xB5 give artist name
- 0xB6 give album title
- 0xB7-0xBF reserved

I'm not sure yet how the "return payload" should be handled for the text

Any other ideas?
