Taking into account the damage weak patents are doing, do you really think that would be a bad thing?

I wouldn't want to make it impossible for anyone but a large corporation to register a patent. Edging out smaller companies and private individuals wouldn't be helpful or constructive.

I do agree that having fewer patents would be a good thing, and I hope that fining patent holders when their patents are found to be weak would help to bring that about,
