Let me rephrase the question to add a little clarity:

Do we plan to institute a dress code?

No, we don't.

I'm a don when I don't wear my White Scarf; I'm a Pelican and a Laurel when 
I don't wear my medallions; I'm a baron when I don't wear my coronet.  I 
assume that I'm a bard when I don't wear my sash.

If we are trying to create the Stepford Bards, then everybody has to wear 
their college-assigned insignia.   But if we are trying to offer assets for 
them to use if they choose, then they get to choose.
