Precisely. Nets are no more "entitled" to frequencies than any other
amateurs. Nor are net control operators "entitled" to QRM-free operation.
When the bands are busy, everybody just has to tighten their filters --
biological and otherwise -- a little more.

If their frequency is in use, they of course have the right to request
someone move, but that person is under no obligation to do so.

Most wise nets set their frequency +/- QRM. Most hams are capable of using
the big knob in the middle of their radio to find the net. It is only those
nets with a twisted view of amateur regulations and the amateur code that
try to enforce use of "their" frequency.
