This would be transformative and encourage a change away from the ‘you should be wearing hi viz’ refrain / excuse : “introducing a hierarchy of road users which ensures that those road users who can do the greatest harm have the greatest responsibility to reduce the danger or threat they may pose to others“
There's much to ponder and most of it is positive. However, Rule 60 poses problems as unchanged it continues to make most of us lawbreakers when cycling road-bikes after dark.
Rule 60 At night your cycle MUST have white front and red rear lights lit. It MUST also be fitted with a red rear reflector (and amber pedal reflectors, if manufactured after 1/10/85). White front reflectors and spoke reflectors will also help you to be seen. Flashing lights are permitted but it is recommended that cyclists who are riding in areas without street lighting use a steady front lamp. Laws RVLR regs 13, 18 & 24
