IDK...perhaps a time limit to implement for the patent to be registered? You can hold a Design Patent for 2 years, after which if you haven't achieved a practical prototype, you lose patent rights. Maybe something along the lines of a "Provisional Patent Application" (which lasts for 1 year)? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Provisional_application
