I think the DMV already does that.
and in doing so it doesnt stop idiots driving around in their pickup truck with some chairs in the back and decorations tied on.. before they get caught by the cops and ticketed for driving around in an unregistered vehicle..
also, dont forget.. theres hundreds of people who get handicapped vehicle permits.. and these allow people to drive their normal vehicle around,.. unadorned with art.. some people choose to snazz up their vehicle..
also.. staff and vendor vehicles ride around..
theres no reason to believe that any vehicle you see driving around with little decorations was approved by the DMV, or approved to be driving around at burning man at all..
edit: ..and dont forget that there is always going to be vehicles that are on the bar of acceptance and might not be as great as some of the best examples of mutant vehicles.. this bar changes year to year as people get more creative with their creations.. theres a very real possibility the vehicle that wasnt so awesome that you saw in 2010 was told to step up their game in 2011 or not get admitted..
