Including the auto-robots now held in a corral at 3620-3635?  Will they now
get a 15kHz "reservation" somewhere in 3525-3600?  That would amount to 20%
of the CW space available to Generals which would become at risk to their
mindless 'brrp, brrp, brrp".  (There's a reason they were herded up into
that remote spot in the band.)

As an aside, it is a measure of the FCC's lack of self-awareness of their
own regs that they didn't bother to amend §97.221(b) as part of the R&O.
