Since power in any portion of the passband is the sum of all signals present
and anyone who's worked AO-40 on FD has had countless experiences with
operators tuning up on top of them or sliding across their QSOs, you'll be
chasing a lot of false violations while also giving a police state feel to
what should be a gentlemen's (and gentlewomen's) hobby.  I hope this idea
never becomes reality.
