The point is to make it easier for licensed folks to avoid mistakes that
violate the law, not to make it impossible for folks who intend to violate
the law.

It's easy to accidentally press the TX button. I would prefer to easily
configure the radio to limit the damages. Duplex off is nice. But, I'd
prefer to set my country to US and license to Amateur Technician and
automatically have Duplex set correctly for all frequencies outside the
amateur bands.

Crowdsourcing database tables is relatively straightforward with MediaWiki.
There may be other wikis that are easier to use and do a good job
crowdsourcing tables.
