Having met some of the people who run these domains, I'd say you
overestimate their ability to plan ahead. What generally happens is that
they had a business plan and revenue projections which they missed because
their domains serve no actual need. So they panic and have a cut price
fire sale, at which point it's utterly predictable that the only customers
interested in bulk cheap domains are crooks.
Let's Encrypt, on the other hand, was intended from the start not to
charge so their system is working the way it's intended to.
