    I was thinking more about safety regulations. We know that in practice
    people would be using these as light bulbs, and that they would
    therefore be installed in typical light bulb type places. But if one
    wants to sell them has heaters, then they have to comply with the safety
    regulations concerning heaters, and they may not.

    Nope, the plastic retaining ring on standard sockets cracks due to the heat
    when used with 100W globes for any length of time. I've replaced stacks even
    when using only 60W globes and a non enclosed light fitting.
