WabiSabiLabi: 0-day Exploits eBay?

Now, you can auction your 0-day exploits online!

WabiSabiLabi (or WSLabi for short) has the following introduction paragraph on its web site:

WabiSabiLabi is aiming to a single moving target: to bring the world closer to zero risk. If the world must become a safer place, the first part of the recipe is simple: to provide a better rewarding for the security researchers, organising an efficient and transparent marketplace, here to maximise the results of their efforts.

Well, the recipe may be simple; but I doubt that the chosen method of cooking can indeed make the world a safer place. At best, it might make the computing world a safer place for the rich.

The BBC has a published piece on WSLabi here.

So what do you think? Should exploits be auctioned off to the highest bidder?
