If a pilot is downed, kick from server.

OR

If a pilot is downed, no refly button for X seconds (server configuration).

My own opinion: Tactics and teamwork will mean something.

Kicking from a server for being dead is pretty counter intuitive. It means that someone will have to leave the game, drop back to the lobby (UBI or HL) and then reload the whole bloody game again just to fly again. Thats one fantastic way to ensure that your server has no players present.

A time to refly button would be interesting but it would HAVE to be intuitive to the player. I don't mind sitting out for 20 seconds or whatever but I want to be able to watch whats going on. Otherwise its an excercise in tedium. If that happens - again people will leave and find somewhere else where they aren't quite as restricted.

A timer count-down on screen to let the player know when he can refly would be nice. Possible leave the death-cam (or whatever you call that) moveable untill the player can refly.

Should be a quick-easy modification for the devs.

I doubt many ego-aces would care for it. The FR folks would have a grand time though.
