Yes. This can be enforced by moving the voice tag, and greatly eased
by a small $CLIENT scriptlet whch does the -v $LAST_SPEAKER +v
$NEW_SPEAKER from an easy-to-type command.

Maybe speaking times can also be automated by having a script
automatically remove voice after the timeout expired. This is much
less trouble-prone than manual de-voicing which can easily be called
