I've always found it frustrating that what enchantments you have access to is randomized- there's no reliable way to narrow down the enchantments at any given time to try and get blast protection on a piece of armor, get smite on a sword, or get fortune or silk touch on a pick. Granted, being able to pick and choose your enchantments at no cost devalues the rarer ones by making them too easily accessible.
So, what would be the cost and how would you pay the price? By adding in another slot in the UI, perhaps directly below or in between the item+lapis slots, and having certain items be placed in this slot which narrows down the available enchantments. For example, using a diamond block will bring up fortune as an option for the appropriate tools (not neccessary fortune III), using a ghast tear or a golden apple brings up mending as an option, etc.
However it is done, the item that provides these benefits is rare, consumed, and has some kind if mystical or magical properties that allow you to focus the magic you are imbuing an item with more precisely: an Arcane Focus.
