A PAS Blue Plaque?

We learnt yesterday that London's Heritage Blue Plaque Programme supports efforts to propagate awareness of the destructiveness of indiscriminate artefact hunting and collecting by erecting a heritage plaque in Gordon Square in honour of a fellow archaeoblogger. I wonder whether they would be placing one on a wall in Bloomsbury Square just a coin's toss away, celebrating the achievements of the considerably more expensive Portable Antiquities Scheme in this area? No, I guess not, when it seems at times that the pigeons make more of a noise about Looting Matters and instilling (real) best practice in "portable antiquity" (sic) collecting than the PAS does.
