    It's interesting that the Commission hasn't allowed such calls yet, since they have been allowed by ITU for several years now.

    Perhaps the Commission's crystal ball has shown the inevitable train-wreck that would occur if such calls were allowed?

    Maybe? I can't think of what might cause significant problems. There would likely be a spike in applications for a while, as people exercised their "creativity." :) But given that there are less than a million of us total, surely the Commission's computers could handle it?

    I suppose there's that same issue that exists with license plates, preventing the issuance of sequences that might be deemed "offensive to the general public." That said, just watching a few hours of broadcast TV in the US in 2018 tells me that ship has already sailed. :eek:

    You can throw away all those applications, just make a copies of them first.

    There would be a lot fewer if a certain person had not previously advertised the availability and the date here on the Zed! ;)
