In any case, whether there is a penalty or not, the main deterrent against trading on the clock should be consideration for your fellow GMs. If someone wants to be a rules lawyer there's only so much we can do to prevent that.
In ATD 2012, we had a 1 hour clock penalty for trading on the clock and it didn't seem to stop anyone.
