Visit greatdomains.com regular and you will see that value+ going into escrow.

Depression.com is in escrow now.

Of course, you get loads of stupid low offers - likely owner trying to get domain on front page.

--> Maybe you're right... but these TM guys will always find a way: e.g. selling or leasing finance.info to a subsidiary.

They would lose their trademark.

The mark is for the goods and services of the owner only - it would be abuse of mark to use it for different types of goods or services.
