LA4RT pointed out after mention of the EI national society bringing the
subject of remote operation of amateur stations across national borders
to IARU R1:

I think the words in CEPT say something that applies to operators when
they enter other countries. The operator in the case of a remote
controlled station is never physically there. Likewise any sort of
'reciprocal recognition' - as opposed to 'reciprocal licensing'
agreement - such as the one between K & VE.
Complicating the operator being licensed by the country where the remote
controlled station is located, I suspect most countries' telecom law
might not give their telecom authorities authority outside the borders
of that country.
The operator of a radio station not being there with the station is a
bit of a change from how things have always been. I rather doubt many
countries were so forward thinking as to draft their laws/regulations to
cover such situations. Since at the highest level (ITU Radio
Regulations) the operator must be "duly authorized", I suspect that
could be the show-stopper that should please EI5DI. ;^)
