I do not see how we can solve this problem on our own. In fact, we shouldn't even try. After all, the promulgation of this new dicate by Dear Leader Shapiro was made necessary solely on account of our collective stupidity, incompetence, and dishonesty. How can we be trusted to figure out a proper protocol for its implementation? What if we do the job poorly or, even more likely given our criminal natures, advance a design that will make our next crop of market manipulation schemes even more profitable - or even help Emmanuel Goldstein fund his hateful enterprise?
No, clearly, if we are not fit to trade with one another without government surveillance, we are not fit to design technology for compliance with government requirements. I would respectfully suggest that you direct your question to our superiors at the SEC. Perhaps they can take a break from their document shredding long enough to tell us what FIX messages and fields we should use so that they can rule us better.
Your fellow goodthinker,
