This could easily be done in Rural Towns across Australia where 100% of the Accommodation Hosts wish to optout of the Overseas Booking Agent sites.
Instantly, Guests will no longer be able to book using the Overseas Booking Agents.
Sounds Radical, however with the support of the Australian Accommodation Industry could be put into place, quickly, smoothly and simply, however the Major 'Pitfall' will be 'Shaking Off' all of the Reasons Not to do it and getting the Idea out of the 'Too Hard' box.

Regaining Control of your Property Listing
Reduction in Operating Costs, Commissions and Charges.
No change to Hosts Websites.
In most cases No change to Channel Manager.
Clearly, there is a lot to think about and not much time before the Overseas Booking Agents have total control.
