Damn, now that's a real good idea!
Only problem is who and how do you have to convince.
I recently came upon a few brown 12' flat, 2 wire, "zip" cord type, with molded caps, that are probably 20 guage. A 180 watt load, (2-90 watt "A" bulbs in a table lamp" had the cord "quite warm" to the touch.
Suggested that the homeowner remove them while I was there, as I don't have the authority to "make the removal". He had a "new one, still in the package, made in CHINA, max. 10 amps, and what appears to be a "UL" logo, but alas, no "listing number.
BTW, they were bought at the $1 store.
