This seems like a bad idea...

What seems like a bad idea? Ambiguous comments?

Because, anything relating to the electrical of a house is heavily regulated. If you were to put this into a house and an inspector saw it, they would likely make you change them because it is not UL or CE listed. Walplates are tested for their durability and the ability to resist starting on fire.

What is the evidence that this could even theoretically prove a hazard? Regulators can go suck an egg, but I am all ears for legitimate safety concerns. The plate should never be energized and there are often lots of other more-combustible materials around outlets (e.g. wood trim).
