MLS wants competition, playoff excitement, parity. Not "Which one of these 2-4 teams with all the fans and money will win the title this year." Its tiresome.
To add to that, there is nowhere near the level of rabid fandom for soccer here in the states as there is in Europe. The vast majority of teams in Europe have huge amount of supporters, even though they are perennially ending mid table.

Such a system wouldn't work here, there isn't nearly enough interest where fans of the lower teams would show unwavering support.
