Usually it is made to an RFA, and makes the team pay closer to UFA prices for RFA when teams expect to pay a bit less for a player who is not yet in his prime. If everyone did it I suppose it would even out and screw over the players in their prime as teams would be 'overpaying' for potential in a lot of cases. So teams basically seem to have agreed to make these pretty rare.

That said it is part of the system. If teams want it out they should have taken it out in this CBA. Which probably would have been the best solution for everyone, ironically including the players. The pie is what it is, if one player gets overpaid it comes out of another player's pay, not the owners.
