Yes, but....dxclusters are part of a network, one would have to have a
way to required that all the clusters in 'your' network were enforcing
that rule. I do not believe this can be done casually, rather it should
be enforced by the program.

At internode connect time information about that nodes registration
policy would have to be presented, and on that basis a decision made as
to accept or reject the connection.  And it would not be good enough to
agree to connect, if that node connects to other nodes that do not
enforce the same policy.

In theory it could be done, just as in theory e-mail spam could be stopped.

It's not easy!
