So what of the EMI problem?

I'm not sure I understand. Reading the article, it seems that induction lights get a break for EMI, where they don't need to meet the same requirements as other household appliances. And we're supposed to think that's fine?

According to the article, they get dispensation because they are supposedly "industrial" or "medical" equipment. Perhaps, if the EMI issue is mostly in the 200 KHz to 500 KHz band, only users of longwave and the AM broadcast band will notice. Still, to me this is not something to just brush aside. It's a big negative.
