Blocking 711 - Revisited

I posted here a long time ago about the blocking of 711 in Long Term Care
and Hotels.

Question: I can see their side of it as they don't need people making
toll calls they are not aware of.

Is there a way of ordering "NO LONG DISTANCE on this Line" flag from the
telco then the relay operator would know to ask for a calling card or
other method of payment for Long Distance. Does anyone know if this is
do-able or if the phone company is supposed to do this and that the Long
Term Care and Hotels are not aware of it.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Yes there is. Have telco set the line
up for 'No Long Distance' which then forces the user to do zero-plus
and pass the billing details to the operator. PAT]
