Probably can't ban PAW out, but should be discouraged to get everyone on a single network.
I don't agree with banning any type of EC but I do think there should be a minimum level of OUT from all aircraft and that, with my future-looking glasses on, should be ADSB. Even better would be ADSB + Mode S and even better than that is ASDSB + Mode S + PAW. A LOT like CloudHound (and future me).
CAP 1391 ADSB devices are tiny and use no electricity, so there's no reason why a glider can't carry one of those. In addition I think their carriage of Flarm should be encouraged because of the very good anti-collision capabilities they have.....as well as conspicuity.
I think that safety would be improved far more by the mandatory carriage of GPS
Yep, that would be the other kit my regime would force you to buy
