I think maybe like Freon, I'm licensed so I can buy R12 I think, haven't in years but I'm told if your licensed and willing to pay it's still around.
You may have summed it up. Willing to pay for it on the R12. maybe to same with Halon. I had no problem with CO2 other than the weight required for the tanks. Just glad carbon tet, is no longer around.

Halon like tetrachloride , when exposed to fire and heat form poisonous gases.
Thus unsafe for any living breathing thing.
NASCAR found out the hard way I believe.
If you were in your scuba gear..... no not I good idea, Nevermind!
