Yikes! So we replace the scenario of 'driving down the interstate, electrical failure!, steer to the side and stop' with 'driving down the interstate, electrical failure!, stop in travel lane, exit vehicle, find little metal bar, attach wherever it needs to go, get vehicle moving (or push), steer to side of road'.

If your car has a problem today (say, electrical failure) while you are moving you can steer to the side of the road. If your car has a problem today when you are not moving someone can push your car while you steer it to the side of the road. Neither of these are possible with no wheel, you are going to be sitting IN TRAFFIC with no way to move til the wrecker gets there.

What other wireless technologies? Wifi? So you want every pair of wireless headphones, speakers, etc to now have to have some way to select what network to use, provide credentials etc?

You are confusing two different things. Pollutants are measured in PPM. This makes sense - it doesn't matter how they got there, they are still pollutants. Emission standards, however, do not measure PPM. For light duty vehicles standards are specified by amount of pollutant (mass) per vehicle mile. For heavy duty vehicles they are specified by amount of pollutant per hp hour or something similar.
