If allowing it to become chaos will accelerate this, they won't lift a finger to stop it.

The cat is so far out of the bag with literally millions of these turd radios in circulation, even if the "hammer were to drop", with so many in the hands of consumers, it would be a fruitless effort.
The FCC has been known to loft a heavy fine on importers and manufacturers who sell non compliant gear. We will see them sending a message in the near future. Hopefully they will also look at OET certification process and start disallowing the rubber stamping of dodgy products.
