The biggest issue with that from a TD perspective is the loss of revenue from buying discs wholesale and paying out with them at retail prices. That subsidizes a lot of tournament costs and helps move plastic. Bigger retailers often sell many more discs than just the ones they use for payout and players' packs. You wouldn't be able to lower the entry fee that much and still be able to cover costs without that revenue stream.
