An interesting idea.  At first read my only concern is that it might demonstrate some of the pathologies of mark-to-market: that stock price is not an actual measure of value, it will fluctuate frequently in the short run, and that random volatility might make the idea harder to execute in practice.  But I assume this could be smoothed out with some sort of damping function, perhaps somehow factoring in the last six months (say) of prices rather than just the price at the instant.  And it's possible those concerns aren't that important anyway.  Anyway, an interesting idea.

Well-deserved.  (As I understand it, pretty much everyone else reported the issue wrongly at the instant, and they were the only ones to correctly report "upheld as a tax".)
