It would not be pointless: it would make the seller's intentions clear.
And it would not be unenforceable. It would be difficult and unlikely to
be enforced, just like most laws.

There was no guilt trip implied. If money was the only motivation, then
this isn't the best forum to sell. If passing it on to another collector
was the motive, then offering it here is no guarantee of that.
