Teaching People to Drive Drunk Safely?

Has anyone seriously looked at whether people can be taught to drive drunk safely? If it is possible, you could have a certification process where people could go through training and receive an endorsement on their license qualifying them to drive up to a given blood-alcohol level. Instead of "how could they even think of driving drunk?" we would have "how could they even think of driving drunk when they've never learned how to do it safely?".
