Raising the prices would affect non-speculative registrants more as 
there are far more of them than speculative registrants.

A speculative registrant can always drop their domain name(s) in a TLD. 
A non-speculative registrant who has built a website, e-mail/social 
media prescence (there are people who are using 
Facebook/Linkedin/Twitter pages as their websites) or business on their 
domain name has to keep paying. There are no simple solutions.
