The only thing that I can come up with is that radios are not required
to have a display, and even those that do might be owned by blind
people, who presumably have just as much of a right to know what
station they are hearing as anyone else.  (Don't ask me to try to
square this with the option of identifying a TV station in the visual
medium only.  Maybe if a station runs DVS they should describe the
legal ID, too!)
