I disagree -- current patents are a problem. They cause huge amounts of money to flow to patent attackers, who can use some of that money to resist reforms -- including reforms like your USPTO-pays proposal. (I am not coming out for or against your suggested reform, as I have not had much time to examine it for possible abuse or other unintended consequences.)
