Let's be fair here, it is unlikely that certification would make them cost $1000.

Honestly,

Would you buy RB112/532/whatever boards if they cost $1k vs $100 each?

I would disagree with that.

Further, I would say that most of the folks using an MT/StarOS system
would tell you that price had little or nothing to do with their
decision.  There are plenty of solutions available that are just as
cheap as building your own, perhaps cheaper - all things considered.

And then the issue becomes how much that vendor is going to mark-up the product, in addition to the FCC cert costs for all their time,
efforts, etc.
Isn't the reason most people are using MT is because of the cost? How many people would buy a RB532 if it was $500? or $1,000? What is everyone's limit? ;)

As far as Mikrotik goes, if any one/more/all MT vendor(s) in this country paid an FCC lab to certify the boards/radios (can't the radios/antennas can be modular certified by Ubiquiti/Senao?), could

that work as a blanket certification that MT could attach to their boards/radios, or does each individual unit/vendor need an FCC certification?
Each particular vendor will need a cert for the complete system they

build. FWIW, I have been pushing MANY vendors to build and certify some Mikrotik radios. You can help yourself here by going to YOUR vendor and asking them to do the same.
