Here's my thinking - the PAY FOR REVIEW is literally a fee for a link drop which is permitted nowhere else. I've been told many times by people in lower income areas they would love a site review but can't afford supporters fees so a one-shot price came to mind.
People that review the sites wouldn't get paid, just as they currently aren't, but often end up getting some work from the process.
It would literally be no different than a paid item in classifieds IMO, buying services, services for hire, site review...
People giving good site reviews obviously build a good public reputation for their knowledge which often leads to paid gigs.
