That's a great idea, but the fact is there are a lot of items with fake
or falsified FCC IDs being imported.  And even more with no FCC id.

Sure, they are illegal to use in this country.  But there is no real
attempt to stop them (and I'm not sure they can stop them).  And in most
cases the company won't be fined - it's too hard to fine a Chinese
company.  It's the users who will suffer.
