I guess you are touching a much larger issue that has very little todo with the Web as such. You are essentially asking me (or the IAB) to get rid of the big players in the market place. Ideally, you want to have lots of small or medium size players but no one that dominates (like Facebook does for social networks or Twitter does for microblogging). 

Changing technical specifications will not help you to get to such a desired state.
