The other rules are still enforceable. Just one person reporting in, everyone stays onboard. Customs still retains the option of coming to the boat so everyone needs to remain onboard until cleared.

To keep the guest occupied while waiting to be cleared, they can start cleaning up the boat. Suuuuuure.

Personally I see it as a tax....
It is a tax. Any fee, think user fees, is a tax. Ronald Reagan perfected the subterfuge that he wasn't raising taxes by instituting new user fees. Any method of involuntary transfer of wealth to any government is a tax by definition. Having said that, I generally am not opposed to user fees. The most common user fee? Bridge and highway tolls.
