The registrar pool is too diffuse for that to work IMO. And logistically, it would be impractical: thousands of contract changes and a mountain of work for ICANN's compliance people. An easier, but still troublesome, approach would be for gTLD registries to prevent hostname objects which have special-purpose locally scoped IP addresses. Getting a contract change along these lines through the ICANN machinery will also be a challenge.
