I think the problem I'm having is it seems like your proposal or 
something like it is a possible step to get there but not at all 
sufficient on its own.  And whether it's actually sufficient will depend 
on the exact policies surrounding CDM deployment...

So we can easily end up with a situation which is no better than now, 
except now enshrined in a standard.

I realize you don't really have a way to alleviate my concern here.  :(
