Actually, it's not about the switching, it's about MMDVMHost not being a repeater client. It will be a repeater, but not a client.

The basic idea will work for all modes except DMR. In fact, there now exists an implementation that uses a MMDVM modem (can use a hotspot board for QRPP) into a 9600 bps capable radio. Currently, this sort of modem only exists for M17, but other modes could conceivably be added. Some modes (especially D-STAR) would also require a hardware AMBE vocoder, such as a ThumbDV. DMR deserves special mention, because of the T/R switching requirements for proper repeater operation, as you alluded to.
There was an announcement abour M17Client on the OpenDV group. I've been testing M17Client with a Repeater Builders MMDVM modem and a Yaesu FT-8900 with great results. I have been using this with a MMDVM based repeater that I have on test here.
