All governments stepped forward and said "shares outstanding will no longer be at the discretion of management. From now on, outstanding shares will change annually based on an average closing share price."

IOW, every company begins with a specific number relative to its marketcap --that being small, mid and large-- and splits or reverses occur annually.

Would this destroy the Options market?
Would it end Options as a form of compensation?
Would it protect shareholders?
