It just kmeans more and more unenforceable rules, unfortunately.
Most hams don't do a lot of the things we are technically supposed 
to do to eccheck our signals now.

Just as they are technically dumbing down hamdom, we have 
all these rules about spectral purity etc. requiring 
absurdly expensive test gear that most of us can't buy 
and now they want to add more rules about bandwidth.
