Banned players get inventory dropped

So, currently if an admin/mod sees a player grief or steal, they can ban the player, and rollback the server. Sometimes though, a rollback isn't necessary, or it would be a hassle to rollback the server (like if it happens right before the server saves, and so almost 8 minutes of progress is lost). Sometimes, such griefers will take items with them that may be impossible to replace without the hassle of bringing up server commands and prefab names. If a banned player drops their inventory, this would save admins a lot of hassle and time. Perhaps also a button for admins only to drop a player's inventory via a single button (With a confirmation) rather than having to find out their player number, command drop their inventory, and ban them, which may give them time to leave the server, forcing the owner to have to manually add them to the banlist via config files.

It would make a lot of sense to have this in the base game, Many players avoid modded servers, so those players would be doomed to have their stolen goods lost forever.

 A stellar idea that should be implemented in the base game. On the advocating side, if users are going to be banned they cannot use their items in that server anymore, and if as often happens they are being banned in some part for stealing it can save a lot of agony and grief especially in unmoderated servers.

For a much lesser opposing argument it could enable banning behaviors out of jealousy to get items. e.g: Player gets Tusk and Tam first up, other disgruntled hunter bans them to get said items. If such a thing were to happen I would question the validity of said server however and the likelihood of such events happening. Whilst due consideration of potential unintended effects of changes should still be considered, I believe all player inventory should be dropped on a ban.
