I think that would be a bad idea because it is would be obscure.  We
should not artificially hamper the freedom of people to decide how
Emacs is best used at their site.  The best we can do is educate them.
Everything else leads to an arms' race of technical measures trying to
thwart the other's intentions.

We don't want to do that.  Really.
