Inspired by Mike Hearn's https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Ripple_currency_exchange
and https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=106373.0

Let’s say there 3 people – person A, B and C. All of them have BTC addresses – address A, B and C. There is also address D – this is multi signature 5-of-9 (n-of-(2n - 1) type).

Events:
Person A owes person B 51.3 BTC and must repay it during next 123 days.
To store this event person A transfers from address A to address B - 0.00513123BTC.  Where last 3 digits – number of days from the day transaction was sent (0.00000123). And other digits – amount BTC owed / 10000. (0.00513000)

Person A pays person B 51.3 BTC – nothing fancy here, just plain transfer from address A to B OR he can send same transaction from address A to address B, making total sum of debts = 0.

Person C wants to insure person’s A debts (part of it, let’s say 23 BTC) – person C takes address A and uses as a private key to make address A(p). Person C makes multi signature 2-of-2 address out of A(p) and address C. Sends there 0.00000023 BTC.

Person C wants to cancel insurance of person’s A debts – person C removes all the money from multi signature 2-of-2 address out of A(p) and address C.

These rules alone will create basic framework on but we can take it even further.

How to enforce loan repayments?

Let’s say person A made 100 BTC deposit into address D – trust account.  Trust rules say that person A can withdraw maximum amount in BTC = 100 – (total of his liabilities).

Person A owes 100 BTC and defaults but was insured by person C for 50 BTC– now person C can take out of trust amount x less 50 BTC, where X – amount in BTC he deposited into trust.

Person A can be insured by person C, person C by person N, person N by person M etc…

Here are more suggestions what rules trust can employ:

Creditors are repaid in FIFO order (First in first out)
If insurance is cancelled – it still applies to any loans made before and during the day it was cancelled.

What is missing here?

In case he did not have deposit in some trust, same thing that will stop people from running with other peoples money - nothing..
