Possible quick fix for WSMN? (was Re: Farewell WSMN; 1590 Dialspot Silent in Nashua)

Yup, I noticed it on my way to Manchester today.  Just
a faint signal from WARV and splatter from WUNR. 
Question....  Now that the clock has started on WSMN's
one year silent period, could they possibly run...
say, 250 watts/ND on the 900/Nashua tower to keep the
license active until a more permanent solution could
be found?  Obviously, this is a "special" circumstance
in the eyes of the FCC, due to encroachment of an old
antenna array. Any thoughts?
