This is a tough one. I do agree that some sort of limit with creating accounts say per day/week or whatever might work but I am not sure that would do anything about the people currently sitting on so many usernames that could be put to use if others had access to them, which is a shame. I don't think it would be entirely fair for those wanting these names to have to pay for it either but I'm not sure it would be entirely right to just take the accounts away from people either, especially if they might actually have plans for some of the accounts later and just have not gotten around to setting it all up. But I do see such hoarders as taking up usernames other users might want which could discourage them and thus potentially lose you guys what they would have contributed.
