And the answer to your question is obviously, "Yes."

As soon as you can figure out a way to do this, I'll take it seriously.
 Until then, this is magic pixie dust.

Everyone has an idea for how to do this: I've yet to see a single one
that actually stands any chance at success.  The more you make the
process automated the more fragile and exploitable it becomes.  The more
you shift the burden to people, the better your chances of resistance to
attack but the worse the learning curve and adoption rates become.
