So it's like "banning" incandescent lamps: there is no law banning
anything but there is a law mandating efficiency.

IOW, if you can build a linear power supply (or incandescent lamp)
that meets the standards, have at it.  Works for me.

The various industries seemed to be moving in that direction anyway,
since the smaller size and lighter weight of switchers was financially
attractive to them.  Now, if we could just get the FCC to actually
apply RFI standards ...
