|I would think that the only rubbers that can be banned are those that don't conform to the announced rules, i.e.:|
Conforming on thickness and pips density and dimensions.
Conforming on frictional coefficients.
Conforming on outgassing requirements.
Conforming on not having surface or sponge treatments -- i.e. the frictional performance needs to rely on the bulk properties of the materials used in the construction and not an adhesive layer added to the top surface. (We already saw SuperNova use an adhesive layer as a way of trying to sneak around the frictionless ban since the layer would wear off and in SuperNova's case result in frictionless rubber.)
I would submit that basic LP with some grip or even LP made from traditional Chinese sticky rubber will not get banned since they are in full compliance.
p.s. I agree that they will eventually ban any antis that fail the friction test.
