Some people/organizations are doing similar things, but in general I agree with others that opportunity cost is the main downside. At the same time, I could see some of these, especially 2-3, actually offering cost-effective impacts because of low-probability systemic changes.

Impact Matters isn't doing exactly this, but they do something similar to it: https://www.impactm.org/

Another resources is the Center for Evidence-Based Programs: evidencebasedprograms.org
