I can see it now , USA Today headlines " Ham operator successfully passes ARRL RadioGram over Orbiting Satellite" .
As much trouble and time it takes to pass a message over much more controlled frequiencies , I could not imagine trying to pass a formatted message over a satellite , therefore rendering a sat as useless for handling emergency traffic.
And I still say a net control type format would allow for many more contacts on field day than just QRZ.
