Haha! Imagining elevators and the nudity.
The other possibility is the complete reverse: no restriction any more on any advice, books, computers or Internet access at all. Just make sure you're using the best mix of calculation, psychology and database knowledge. Don't fight it, encourage it! Pure human calculation and skill based games can go back to the living room and picturesque city squares (tongue in cheek here).
The result is possibly just as unpleasant as the elevator option, at least to most folks. A bit like Formula-I racing then? Teams of engine tweakers and skillful navigators for the finishing touches and unexpected maneuvers to throw other engines off. Who knows, the future (and to some, sadly enough, the current correspondence chess world).
Can you stop the future? LOL.
