Would a .secure top-level domain make the Internet safer?

Here’s an interesting idea: a security startup has proposed a new top level domain that would be called .secure, and would require web sites using it to live up to a higher standard of security. The advantage for web users would be that you could visit such sites with confidence, without having to worry about security issues. Would it work? Exactly how would it work? Would attackers see it as a special challenge and target the domain’s sites? There are plenty of questions, but Artemis Internet, the company that came up with the idea, at least should get points for thinking outside the box.
