I don't think this is necessary. Just set up a deadline, and if you don't meet the deadline than the person you are sending to will get paired with someone else who got stifffed.

The downside is more shipping (and everyone would probably have to make a small contribution for mailing costs), but the attraction is more security, and it's less administration than the debt collection approach.

And for the rest of us, for whom the current exchanges seem to be working, we can continue participating in the existing exchanges, recognizing the possibility that return is not going to be 100%.
