Hmm. Good thinking. The txt idea is good.
Are the community large enough to get a proper "marketplace" for selling and buying ads? If there is a community spirit it might work. but remember when bidding for keywords on google people see your ads when performing a google-search. Which means they
are allready "in the market" for something that can help them cure the itch so to speak. With google ads, you are allready in a specific theme site, so you are likely to be in the mood for travelling ads when visiting travelling pages.
what I am saying is that this could be a great way for Dnn users to earn to som eincome, and it could provide a cheaper way of advertising for others.
What about it? Would you place an ad in one of the Dnn sites?
If not let's know why not?
What are you willing to pay?
Would you place such ads in your site in order to generate income?

I think this is a Fantastic idea, especially if it also can target different segments.
I go a little bit further or twist the concept a bit here, but I think this will work with a simple addition to the (a) taxonomy. (Almost like a RSS Feed)
As an example, someone is a Skin developer and is interested in Skinning tools. (Nice to subscribe to skinning tools)
Someone is a service provider and likes to have ads related to tools that could add value to the Service provider business. (Modules, skins, designers, custom devs and so on)
Other offers free sites, or likes to provide DNN specific ads to its community. (More like the real thing; all the things based on interest or generic keywords)
I vote for well designed taxonomy that is dynamic as well as supporting keywords.
This is something that cold really leverage the awareness of the DNN community size for non community customers. This is a super sales tool just show we have an inner DNN marketplace where things actually happens. It’s good for us in the community and it’s
good for the DNN users.
Have to go now, but I will really start to think around this either to support it with manpower directly or with ideas!
(I didn’t follow your structure as I’m not there yet, but to answer some of the questions above. I will maybe not advertise, but I will surely subscribe.)

The biggest design issue you will have to contend with is the issue of click-fraud.
It seems whole nations are set on doing battle with Pay-Per-Click. It's an easy mark.
Customer A is bidding on a keyword that customer B already bids on.
Customer A decides that customer B might be taken out of competion for the clicks if someone clicked customer B's link a bunch of times fraudulently. You get the picture.
