But for users like me with multiple valid SIM cards, I think being able 
to run a script/app on the phone that says "this SIM is valid, don't do 
a wipe" would be necessary -- keep a 'catalog' of allowed SIM's.

If an unknown SIM is inserted, send an Email to some central location 
with the phone number of the SIM that IS inserted, so you now have the 
phone number for which to send the 'wipe' SMS message.

Just my $0.02.
