Good thinking. I just think price is the least important aspect of making this a trusted space for nonprofits. Perhaps capping the aftermarket at cost will serve the same purpose as it would dissuade renewals by commercial entities there solely to resell but leave be those who have built a brand there

I am a bit worried about proposals like denying renewal to registrations that do not pass the litmus test of virginity. Even before PIR took over .org there was no strict requirement about being no-profit. Of course, this could be enforced now for new registrations, but to deny renewal would be most unfair.
One of the points we raise constantly in connection with the price raise is that registrants are locked in, and will have huge switching costs. The same will apply for a commercial registrant who has registered a domain name with .org maybe because the name he/she wanted was already taken in .com, or maybe for a much simpler reason, that she/he trusted PIR more than Verisign considering the record of good practices. If PIR denies renewal to a person like this, it will instantly lose the reputation earned with years of good behaviour. We might have a “pure” non-commercial domain space, but one that few would trust enough to be willing to be part of it.
Cheers,
Roberto

For sure. That said, my guess is that even a liberal interpretation of "non-profit" would be far more conservative than the status quo. We could identify the jurisdictions that actually have that distinction and  suggest that renewals won't be granted to those who are not recognized in one of those jurisdiction. That new registrations are granted only to those who are. That the secondary market is capped at cost recovery. I mean, there's only so much we can do with a tiny piece of the work of a non-profit but these things might be possible.

The challenge would be to come up with an objective, and readily applied, method to determine who qualifies as "for profit" and who does not.  Sure there are lots of crystal clear cases; the challenge is sorting out the borderline ones.
