Right, and then there will have to be a public debate.   I expect that exactly what you describe will happen or be attempted in various jurisdictions.   That's okay.   Requiring this stuff to be done publicly is better than it happening in secret.

(Is this conversation still really useful?   I don't think I'm saying anything you don't already know, so I don't know why you made this point.)
