Government should never mandate a particular technology.
It virtually guarantees that the price will remain high and it stifles development of better or cheaper alternatives.
If Flat Screen TVs had been made mandatory early on and everybody were entitled to them, they would still cost $10k.

And they would explode. If I recall, the number one cause of apartment fires in the old Soviet Union was television sets suddenly catching fire.
