It is a perfect model for simplification: A one sentence law prohibiting everything, and exemptions granted to the squeaky wheels and well-connected.

Think of it: No regulations, orders or manuals of standards. Just one sentence prohibiting everything, and a benevolent regulator granting exemptions to grovelingly-thankful industry participants.
