FCFS is just a software that allows anyone to run a
first-come-first-served registry. That's not something for GANA.

We early on made the decision that the ".pin" zone would be public and
free of charge, but of course extensions adding an option in the FCFS
implementation to realize a non-public registry, or one where
registration must be paid (say with GNU Taler?) are welcome. But those
should then not be ".pin" but something else.

What we could do is create a registry of default GNS top-level zones in
GANA, and there we'd then put the public key of '.pin', together with
other such registries. The tricky bit here is that we will need a policy
that defines the process for adding and removing such entries. I think
initially something simple would do, like "convince the GNUnet
maintainers to add your zone". We can then decide on a case-by-case
basis how high the bribe needs to be. ;-)
