The scheme I’ve been considering is the use of services (separate from miners) that guarantee inclusion for you for some predetermined price and then do the bidding on your behalf. Via contracts you can guarantee you get included within a certain number of blocks or you receive a full refund…or even possibly receive compensation for failure to deliver.
