I don't suppose one could purchase a dummy domain with Namecheap and
then ask them to sign a certificate for the real domain (with another
provider)? I suspect not, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

Except for the few big names, most domain providers do not provide
inexpensive certificates so the point is not invalid (yet). I don't
think changing domain providers to bundle the cost is a reasonable
solution to the high costs of certificates.
