Such a measure should not be necessary, according to some crude simulations I have tried. The presence of a long dash at what is intended to be the dot frequency clearly stands out as implying multiple dots. If one has access to the time scale, it's not difficult at all to read the number of dots (or dashes!) represented by a prolonged presence of signal at either frequency; at least, as long as one knows ahead of time, or can deduce from seeing a few dot-dash sequences, what the dot period is. Looks as if Rik has devised a really efficient form of time compression here. Varicode for the eyes!
