The goverment projects are done with the understanding that if the money is really needed it will be given.

The suggestion is to make a contract that would require the promised product be delivered with the agreed budjet. It is understood to include what the deliverer reasonably needs to have a buffer for unexpected costs already in it. In case of underestimation that will eat up into his motivation compensastion (what could also be called profit). At the very extreme the deliverer is demanded to make the product even if it would cost him more than the agreed budjet (ie negative profits). If needed the buyer could demand the delivery of the product via trial. That is there is 0 need for the buyer to agree for budjet raises. Thus the agreed budjet is likely to be an overestimation but not overtly or runaway so and would be more binding than the kinds of budjets that you refer.

If these guarantees would be targeted at changing price to be payed adversly it would be business as usual. However here the guarantee on the price to be payed is only indirect. Because the budjet is not allowed to raise and the buyer has not committed to pay unless his share is under an agreed sum the buyer can expect his share to drop but never to raise (if purchases can't be canceled (ie there is no leaving pool only joining it) which we might want to do just so that this guarantee can be given (if we are not already doing so for other reasons for example that the product is digital)). While the cost can drop it can never go negative which makes it inherently impossible to be a pyramid scheme while it can seem similar (ie you only get the product out, you are never getting more money out than you put in).

This is a different kind of arrangement than is currently practised. While what is currently done can be used to argue analogously with this if it is applicaple in this case it is truly different and doesn't apply as such.

No, that's a government contract given for a fixed price and not cost-plus.

You can't constantly change what you advocate and expect that your proposal makes sense.
