I think it would be unwise to presume that you can enforce this. Such
approaches have failed in the past. You would be better served by
focusing on creating a system whose benefits are sufficiently compelling
that the question of imposing the new system doesn't arise. To me this
is the main benefit of having such tooling ideas go through the boost
review process.
