We already make sure that there is the name of a member in writing next to the item they are selling. In some cases this can be substituted with seller references and a confirmation to a mod like was seen here:

FS: XFX 7900 GS XT w/ lifetime warranty - $80 obo

Us mods DO take personal involvement when we must and I believe this is the most we can do give each seller's / buyer's unique traits. If not, when a sale goes bad, all fingers would point at the mod who was "supposed" to screen the seller.
Well it's also worth posting that it's not the mod's responsibility, it woudl just be a bonus. Even adding a suggestion for heatware in the rules would add to the security. I don't expect babysitting, or anything for that matter, I was just making a suggestion. Again I wasn't trying to be rude or say anyone isn't doing there job. I like it here! Just a suggestion.
