I think that understates the EMI problem.

That's why I repeatedly have to remind many dozens of Members to use LOW LOOP AREA in their wiring and terminations. Why I have had to remind Members that the LONG wire from the interwinding screen must not be taken via a high inductance connection back to the mains Input Earthing point. Make it very short to reduce the inductance and turn the toroid upside down to allow it to be even shorter. Tie the very short lead to the enclosure at it's exit from the insulation.

That is almost a true statement. The snag is that nowadays it is not unusual to have strong RF around within homes, as most people walk around with a radio transmitter in their pocket - this produces RF from time to time even when it is not being used.
