I think you may have a problem in that while there is a set of
specifications which must be met (CubeSat Developer
developers are free to design their structures in any way which meets
these.  This leads to a large variety of designs (stackable boards,
motherboard/daughterboard, or any combination of internal assembly), and
therefore fitting your transponder into one of these designs would in no
case guarantee it would fit in any other.

Perhaps you should consider contacting Andrew Kalman with Pumpkin,
inc.<http://www.cubesatkit.com/>about getting your design incorporated
into the CubeSat Kit.  To date, there
are only three cubesats in space which use the structure, but it's probably
the closest to a "standardized" design.
