That's a really silly argument.  The technology is obviously already 
there for all sorts of remote setups, and if anybody wants to cheat 
using one they aren't going to wait for your slippery slope to happen.  
What you just said is the direct equivalent of saying that KW amps 
should not be allowed because some people will be encouraged to cheat 
using excess power.
