Sure, but players with ECM modules will also be flagged as suspects, due to having potential bad intentions towards innocent civilians.
In case they attack any non-suspect target, CONCORD will intervene, and put them in jail for 1h+, which they can bail for an isk fee according to their security status, or just wait it out while being online, as being offline doesn’t count to jail timer.
Rather than a cumcumbersome mechanic like this to try and deal with bots, something simpler, like CCP managing to differentiate between human and bot behavior would be much better.
People (and bots) mine in orcas for a reason, because it’s convenient, and mostly due to the dangerous environment that gankers have created.
Your suggestion would make it so people in wardecable corps are always at the mercy of someone richer that can wardec them on a whim.
Even if they don’t bother to wardec them, as long as a member of this corp fly any ship that isn’t tanky, they will just get ganked anyways, due to being an easy target.
On another note, according to training time, an Orca takes a much higer investment in order to be an effective mining vessel, so I see no point in the player not being rewarded for their investment to reach that point.

With the best,a nd most expensive, mining drones, Orcas should have a similar mining yield to Macks and Skiffs, but still fall below a Covetor and Hulk.
As I have stated before here Multiple Orcas at one location, an easy balancing option would be to include some more related skills for the Orca training, or simply for the mining drones themselves, and that would “fix” the “problem”.
IMO however, the real problem is how Orcas overshadow exhumers, having much better tank and similar yield with maxed skills.
To fix this, you just have to improve Exhumers.
If Exhumers had a role bonus to mining laser range, I’d jump into one in no time, no matter if it costs x10 or x20 times a mining barge, but currently I see no point in flying them, not being worth the extra skill time investment for such a meager increase in income, while putting a “free shiny killmail” target on my back.
