/me smells burning rubber.
I'm trying to decide how I'd feel if (and this is just an exercise, it has no basis in reality) anyone could create content, but in order to sell content one would need to register with lots of information. It might hinge on whether or not one could give an object away (since it would be difficult to do things like TSMGO! does if there were impediments). Maybe not, though - I don't know. The anonymous yet ubiquitous "they" have always said (when presented with the notion that only Premiums should be allowed to create content) that they would not've stuck around for even five minutes if they hadn't been able to create things, which I can understand. It seems reasonable, however, to ask people interested in selling to register personal information.
I definitely wouldn't like it if, instead of simply registering with personal details one needed to somehow take a test or be accepted in some way by a governing body.
