I'm sorry, but this is a terrible idea.
Back when I was on the ALAC over a decade ago, it wasn't clear whether
ALAC represented individual vanity registrants (of whom we certainly have
a lot on the ALAC) or actual end users. We finally realized that we
represent end-users, the billions of people who actually use the Internet
but will never register a domain. I would be strongly opposed to anything
that back-tracked from that.
