Add-on "bounty" section?

I've seen various add-on requests recently where people have said "I'd be willing to contribute $xx if someone could make this add-on". I know there's at least 10 add-ons here being discussed that I'd happily contribute funds to if it sped up their developement but at the same time I couldn't afford to outright pay for them myself.

Would it be possible to create either a section on here (or at Xenfans or similar maybe?) where people could formally contribute to a bounty, they money is kept by the organisers and then paid on completion.

I recall a VB add-on site that used to have a bounty section which I believe was quite successful.

It'd also be good to get some feedback from developers if they think this would give them more motivation or whether it's a rubbish idea.
