Alles, was nicht Pflicht ist, ist verboten; everything not mandated, is
forbidden. That's a ban spelled sideways. IIRC, the rules apply to
§ 431.371 Submission of data.

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
