p.s., another interesting question for Palmer: is PayPal a "bank"?

That was the same question I had.
Palmer's reply did not really answer it, but there is an answer.
The answer is that a) governmentally-charted banks are easier to
certify, and b) a query screening protocol that is focused on a specific
set of problems (e.g., phishing) would be more workable than a general
I personally would have little objection to the implementation of a
proposal like this if it was restricted to banks pursuing time-sensitive
Internet-based fraud that targets bank consumers.
I think the proposal would break down if applied more widely.
There are also some important missing elements in the proposal.
* Who would establish this query-screening process: ICANN?
* How would the centralized database be established?
