She informed me that the RRCA has been encouraging headphone bans since the 80s due to the recognized risk.

I had no idea the issue went back that far.  I suppose 'knee-jerk' was a poor choice of words.

What status quo would that be?

I am referring to the current ban on the use of headphones at most races.  For enforcement, I would settle for a simple announcement before the gun reminding runners that the use of headphones is a violation.  I can't say that I've ever heard one.  I would be curious to find out if those in violation are aware of it.
