Yeh Keith, dream on.

Human nature being what it is, I would say this is a losing proposition on
an open-acess satellite.  LEILA was a creative and optimistic idea, but...   

So with upcoming digitalization of satellites, I wonder if we won't be
seeing the advent of access codes someday.  You want to work the satellite,
then you register your station and sign a agreement to abide by the "rules
of good conduct".  You are issued a unique access code.  You exceed these
"rules" too often and your access code is revoked!

I expect I will get flamed to "H___" for advancing this idea.
