The cap and floor is simply a mechanism to help the salary paid out be close to the 50-50.
That's what escrow is for. If it turns out the players were actually paid on aggregate more than 50% of HRR then the money they put into escrow is used to make it so the amound pais is actually 50-50.
So the fact the cap doesn't go down, has no affect on the 50-50.
