It isn't possible to pass laws nor make any equipment of any kind "idiot proof". As soon as we design or legislate to protect from idiots then better idiots will be made :)

I don't think any ATU will prevent damage to a transmitter due to human error. The commercial and military equipment employ extensive circuitry in the transmitter to take care of such mishaps and shut down to a safe level. A soldier under fire can be forgiven for not checking the aerial matching. Likewise, an aerial on a vehicle may be damaged without the operator being aware of the damage.
