That SEEMS like a good idea. It also seems unlikely to reach critical
mass and become known to consumers since there are few entries in the
data base and the $30 fee is likely to keep the data base small.
I would suggest that they keep the fee small or zero until they do
reach critical mass. Since the cost of putting up such a website is
only about $100/year, the fee is grossly high unless they plan to spend
some money on verification and it seems that they do not. Or maybe I
did not read closely enough?
