Would you prefer only the Mega Form of a Pokemon Banned, or the Pokemon itself?

I know some people don't agree with bans at all, but that's not what this topic is about.

Have them in seperate tiers. For some Pokemon, the Mega form is just another hold item choice, others play in a different tier with it.

Only ban the stone. There would be no point in, say (hypotetical situation) banning Kangaskhan entirely. Kangaskhan is not a threath, Itīs Mega is.

Itīs kind of like sending that nice kid who sits in front of class to detention just because his brother couldnīt behave.

Lucario isn't broken.
Mega Lucario is.

Ban Lucarionite, not Lucario.

This would be no different to the Lati@s Soul Dew issue, in my opinion. If a certain Mega broken, but the pokemon is fine, ban the Mega. I could see this possibly being an issue with a few of the 'top' OU pokemon who have mega evolutions. Then again, I'm not knowledgeable enough about either the bonuses they get as megas, or the importance of their normal hold items, to know if this would really happen.

Banning speed boost SPECIFICALLY on Blaziken would set a precedent where every other pokemon and ability combo would have to be analyzed and sorted into specific tiers for each. Thus it was much easier to just ban Blaziken altogether.

Latias and Latios are fine outside of ubers, but soul dew is not. It's a unique item only they can use anyway. Same logic will apply to megastones. Some megastones may be banned and some may not. Smogon may end up tiering the megas on their own though since some are so drastically improved that they may warrant it, like Mega Kangaskhan or Mega Mawile. Mawile in particular is really unusable in standard play without the mega stone, but with it becomes a serious threat - and fairy gives it a safe switch in (with an intimidate cut too!) now. It's not like, say, Mega Lucario, who is probably OU with or without his stone and has viable sets for the stone and other items.
