I actually think this is a good idea, and Japan would be money ahead to
expand this, both in numbers and in time.  Dose records now probably
won't stop law suits later, but at least it will make it so the lawyers
have to address numbers, rather than rely on pure emotion.

What would REALLY help is if someone came up with a rad instrument of
some type that would measure gamma, send it wirelessly to the users
smart phone, which would tag it with a GPS reading and a time stamp
(yes, there can be an app for that), and send it to a central site to be
put in a database and displayed as a map.  The could then open up the
Exclusion Zone a chunk at a time, after doing a course survey to make
sure there isn't something at the "Oh My God!" level, then crowd-source
the detailed survey.
