How would you deal with the current industry which predominantly
involves third parties running web and internet functions on behalf of
registrants? I'm not sure a company who pays someone to "run my website"
would be expecting to get their bills.

If you decide it is a good thing, that there should be the opportunity
for a middle man or agent between the registry and the end user - be it
a registrar, reseller, afilliate, whatever, you will always have the
possibility for problems.

If you do eliminate any possibility for a middle man, you may then get a
situation where the middle man will still exist, will register a domain
name on behalf of the registrant, with the contact details pointing to
the agent rather not the registrant which I dont think is a good outcome.
