Agreed. Has anyone proposed a luxury tax rule? Allow teams to spend up to $70.2 million while making the cap what it would be at 50/50. Teams have to match every dollar spent over the 50/50 cap into a pool that is distributed evenly to teams that don't pay any luxury tax.
Teams that can spend are allowed to spend, and it benefits the league. Not enough would be generated just by tax though, so the league would have to have a concrete method of revenue sharing along with the tax.
