Not likely in the time frame permitted by the policy being debated.

While I agree with you philosophically, the reality is that there is a difference
when those people are "customers" vs. when they are not.

When they are "customers" you tend to have to make all kinds of accommodations
for whatever they _WANT_ to do regardless of how it fits into your idea of what
is right. Especially when you are a business small enough to be affected by
this policy.
