Kris Is Right, Of Course

Kris Rusch is absolutely correct here on two points:

1) These are terrible agency contracts and nobody should sign anything like them; and

2) The contracts are probably unenforceable and could be successfully challenged in court, if matters ever came to that point — but the writer would bear the cost of legal representation to do that. Better to avoid that situation and just do as Kris advises, and don’t sign in the first place.
