AND NOW BACK TO YOUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED JOE.

That's a very good point. You could actually fudge the math to increase revenues by adding disproportionate amounts to the seats they sell to businesses (who don't care what they pay). Plus, you can sell it to your audience as a bleeding-heart player safety measure. So, yeah, don't understand why that wouldn't be done.
