Well, we've had a no code licence in VK for _decades_ (the Limited licence).
Allows operation on 29 MHz FM (that was a recent addition), as well as all
modes from 6m and up.

Strangely enough this hasn't killed the hobby.  In fact, you'll notice a lit of
'limiteds' among the lists of ATV and microwave operators down here...  Hardly
the death of the hobby (though other things are having a detrimental effect,
and I feel it's largely our fault in how we present ourselves).
