Mozilla "trusted websites" database. SSL Certs

I've noticed that you have to buy a SSL cert, not to use SSL but so that the browser knows its a safe connection, why is this system even needed ? its encryptet anyhow. My question/suggestion why cant firefox add an extra service where small webdevelopers like myself can enter information about the project like the Domain name and contact information etc. And then the community perhaps can go in and confirm that this website is legit and its safe to proced with the HTTPS request. It wont work cross browser i know, but i think it would be a great feature.
