If the CHL wants to continue to be considered the top development league for junior players, it needs to continue to be open to the top junior players from other countries. There's already protectionism going on with the import rules, there doesn't need to be any more.
That said, I don't necessarily think the development kink is at the major junior level. Players in younger age groups are getting left behind even further by their international peers, especially the Americans. Part of the problem in these younger age groups is our insistence sending regional teams, instead of the best of the best, like the other countries tend to.
