Nice analogy, though an AV engine just runs in the background and doesn't
disrupt your workflow ...

"Average" is what drives the entire internet.
Expecting some level of security is one thing, so PCI, for example, would be
fine. Expecting some of the SSAC recommendations to be adopted by all
registrars is not.
And the governments are more likely to be interested in what registry operators
are up to - not registrars

That's all well and good, but expecting registrants to jump through hoops to
update nameservers is not an improvement
If you are managing the DNS for Amazon.com or Microsoft.com then you'd probably
expect to have to deal with a lot of hurdles to make "simple" changes
However if you are a personal user or SME you won't have time to deal with that
kind of stuff and will find it to be more trouble than it's worth.
