The CAA could, if they chose, do something about this quite quickly and easily.
Many fans of PPR suggest that it is a requirement of the aerodrome licence. For a non-public use licence, they take the part that says the aerodrome may be used by persons/aircraft with permission of the owner/operator and interpret this to mean that each and every movement must be individually approved via a telephone call.
More sensible people interpret this differently, taking the view that somehow saying "all welcome" (website, flight guides, AIP, etc) covers that requirement for users to have permission.
I am not aware of the CAA going after any aerodrome for letting people fly in without phoning first.
The CAA could just publish a memo saying that it is perfectly ok under the regs for an operator to take an all-welcome stance and thus give a blanket permission by default.
It would not solve it completely (since there are plenty out there who genuinely believe it's a good idea) but it would dispel the myth that it's a CAA requirement.
