I said this on the related private flying thread:-

If gliders and other light traffic not equipped with transponders are allowed to fly unrestricted across the arrival and approach paths of commercial jets, eventually many people will be killled.

At 200-250 kts the mk1 eyeball will not prevent this from happening.
