I can recall several cases where we needed to get a domain online quickly for one reason or another. Usually it revolves around the marketing department not being in-touch with the rest of the company and the wrong/misspelled domain name ends up in a print/radio/tv ad that is about to go to thousands of people and cannot be changed. We end up having to go get the name that is in the ad and get it active as quickly as possible.
I am not sure if this is what you are saying, but here is what just came to mind:
2 choices, same price:
1. instant, no refund. 2. 3 day hold, not active, but refundable till the point it goes live.
I also just noticed something that doesn't seem to have been brought up: by registering, wait, refund, repeat - you can sit on a name for free. (under both current and my proposed.) To prevent this we need a small processing fee.
