Who said it needs to be safe? Orbital bombardment. Ransom, etc. Then, all of a sudden, the world needs to get access to cheap materials in space for defense. Space economy established.

Amateur experimentation isn't limited to modulation experimentation. Usage experimentation is actually more common -combining different types of equipment, techniques, uses, etc.
No, but that sort of experimentation is open to many more amateurs when using open, non-proprietary technologies.
