Default Are pilots required to stick to standard R/T?

Somebody asked me this question. For sure, professionalism dictates that standard R/T is used, but is there anything preventing the casual weekend pilot from making up his own R/T as he goes along? I've been looking through the documents and can't find where it says pilots must use standard phraseology. ATCO's need to follow the rules:

JO 7110.10T 14-1-3. WORDS AND PHRASES
Use the words or phrases in broadcast, radiotelephone, and interphone communications as contained in the Pilot/Controller Glossary.


Any such thing for pilots?

Not really. We have your occasional illustrious APC users who admit to intentionally blocking ATC freqs for their own personal enjoyment/entertainment. If the FCC doesn't go after that, I'd say your occasional straying from the "standard R/T" protocal would hardly be noticed....
