Then expect the USA amateurs to get left behind.

There are no such restrictions in Europe.

The ARRL is not in a position to unilaterally thrust such
an edict on amateurs worldwide, so it only hurts it's own

Affording the modulation with lower performance greater
priviledge goes against the drive to maximise spectrum
efficiency. We should never, ever be seen to do such a
thing. Amateur radio should be seen to be keeping it's
house in order if it wishes to retain the respect of
government spectrum-management authorities.

Wider bandwidth data modes are not in themselves wasteful.
The power density is lower, and the geographical footprint
is reduced. If the message is delivered quicker with less
retries then less spectrum is used.
