That is alot more time consuming than you think
I said I'd bet the answer would be no.
Yea I'd figure, because of the evidences that they have to obtain first for each botter to avoid any trouble. But can't there be a small team dedicated to that? It could even be a one-man team... or even a volunteer player (I bet a lot of players here in the forums would be willing). Volunteers can do all the dirty work of investigating each botter, and then GMs/CMs can just smash their banhammers... right?
Nothing stopping players from doing that now
That's why it would take "less" time, & not be "more time consuming", if the bots were dealt with the same way, as tickets repoting them
