This would work OK for adding a new section, but would be hell for
editing (which is the majority of actions on a talk page), because the
software can't really know what you edited - you might just have fixed
a typo.

A simple JavaScript could check if there's ~~~ in the edit box when
saving a talk page, and alert you if there's not.
