If it doesn't matter to the FCC, then they have a simple process
(which does require 60 days notice in the Federal Register) to
eliminate the requirement.  Yet, in contrast, the recent changes to
73.1201 have made it more complicated, rather than eliminating what
many see as an obsolete requirement.  It's hard to reconcile this with
the Commission's apathy (catatonia!) on the enforcement side, but I
suppose they respond to what members of Congress actually complain

Of course, if stations no longer had to identify their community of
license, many communities would lose the last remaining "service" they
receive from those stations.
