This is a pretty neat idea.
I suspect it makes putting the aerial up more fun than using it, in many cases.

A reasonable argument that compilers should enforce programming style.
Speaking as someone who's seen what sort of code newbie programmers in Java (a very non-enforcing language) and occam (a reasonably-enforcing language) write, I'm all for it.

"I therefore make the following vows, with respect to music: I will never pad shirtless across a stage in front of a microphone stand, festooned with fluffy boas. I will never destroy a hotel room. I will never brandish a handgun in order to bolster my street credibility. I will never, ever be seen at a party with someone whose profession is model/actress.
I will never let them use an auto-tune device on my voice. I will never perform as a guest DJ, and especially not at 2am. I will shoot no commercials in Japan. I will not play at the annual shareholder's conference of any major computer manufacturer. I will not sign a management contract with anyone from Belgium. I will not get my nose, tongue or navel pierced. I will avoid Winona Ryder."
