No Bluetooth initiated voice dialing on Android

So sad. No, Android does NOT do Bluetooth initiated voice dialing.
It's a very long story but it is disabled because there may have been problems with the Android being able to understand the speech that comes through a Bluetooth connection.
Motorola+Google+Verizon = can't use it in the car?!
That's right, in many states it's illegal to use your Droid in the car unless you dialed in the driveway first.
"Why didn't you kids dial before we left the house?!
If I have to pull this car over, I swear, somebody's gonna have something to dial about!"
