How much more, per-domain registration or renewal, would you be
prepared to pay to cover the due-diligence requirements, the
additional skilled staff, the legal and PR costs when domains are
cancelled due to false accusations (or true ones) and so on?

(I'd be prepared to pay quite a bit more, if it were to actually work,
but I know it wouldn't).
