Why not just run the charges as a percentage of revenue? i.e. a flat
10% of revenue. This means that domain's that don't charge, don't pay,
and domains that do charge, do pay.

And it automatically means that more valuable domains (i.e. ones that
people pay more for a name in... ) pay for some of the infrastructure.
