You'd get rid of heavy front loading and also make it impossible to tack on BS years at league minimum, or at a huge discount compared to cap hit.
What about using an average of the 3 highest paid years, or something like that? Teams would have to smooth out salary, otherwise they'd have a player getting like a $11 mil cap hit for the duration of his deal.

EDIT: I think that solves one problem, but creates another. I don't think that would work.
