I think that anytime someone buys bolts or bolt hangers from an outdoor shop, the shop should have them declare where they intend to bolt. Then, they can be informed if this is in a place where they shouldn't be bolting (i.e. two bolt boulder probs, fist cracks, offwidths -don't laugh, I've seen it)

its a good idea..
..except for the fact that if some sort of license is needed then so is some sort of course, which means expenses.. ..also, if someone does not have a license they could be tempted to use inferior bolts.. ..they could simply go to the hardware shop and buy a crappy 10mm bolt and ram it in the wall with crazy glue..

Crazy glue? No self respecting redneck would be caught without his handy-dandy do-it-yourself duct tape/bolt hanger combo. That's a good point. I'm not so much stressing licensing or anything like that, as much as just asking climbers to declare their intentions for the approval of those in the know (which any climbing shop should pride themselves in)
