I don't feel this is an appropriate solution, myself, but there may be other

The most obvious is to have FM allocations on linear transponders that have the
bandwidth and power budget to support several FM QSOs.  This could be
accommodated on 70cm and up.

Might mean beefing up the next generation of amateur satellites, but it
provides one possible (long term) upgrade path.  There needs to be more
encouragement of SSB/CW operation as well, the linear birds are very quiet on
this side of the world. :-(
