I believe this would be impractical. There are a number of satellite 
operators that don't read these messages. Of those that do, there are bound 
to be some who don't wish to comply with the rules for one reason or 
another. If only a hand-full don't cooperate the resulting pandemonium would 
encourage those that do cooperate to abandon the program or give up.

If you've ever been in a DX pileup, you'll know what I'm talking about.
