Nice thought, but this approach would be rife with confusion and  
bureaucracy. In the case of automated playlists, you can't post the permission  to 
deviate. So, first you get in trouble, then you explain, then the punishment  
is rescinded (maybe), and everybody has wasted his/her time.

Government should never play a role in making up rules for how  radio 
stations should program music.  I believe getting permission from  the artist or 
record companies to be able to play more than three songs on a  project over 
the course of the hour is the better way to handle it.   Governments are 
clunky in how they conduct business and would just pass that  clunky 
sensibility to programmers who want to present music as elegantly as  they can.
