Rights trading system

So currently we have a system of restrictions based upon enacted laws, such as "Each player may not kill more than X elk per day".
My suggestion is to allow players to trade a particular right that they have to another player.
For example, if the law states that a player may not kill more than 2 Elk per day, and I don't have the hunting skill, then I'm never actually going to use that right at all. Furthermore if my hunting skill is too low, I will not have as much to gain from exercising that right than a player who has a high hunting skill.
A simple work around would be for me, as a non-hunter or low skilled hunter, to sell, trade or give my right to kill 2 elk away to someone who can make better use of it.
Perhaps this would need paper or some other form of transfer which basically states:
"I AParticularPlayer hereby grant AnotherParticularPlayer my right to kill 2 elk per day, for the next X days."
Those rights can be traded for another item or simply given away for free.
The same could be applied to any other right, for example, the right to produce tailings. I could for example sell my right to produce tailings to someone who will get a much more benefit from producing them than I would.
Essentially, it's a form of emissions trading scheme.
