I don't think that disqualifies it as a solution, it just means there 
would be a transition period while users learn that it is a required 
part of messages sent to the BTS.

But let's see how the new SA rules work before imposing any specific 
requirements on BTS messages, or (especially) requiring a particular 
browser based UI or program be used to interact with the BTS.
