The cap will decrease at a slower rate, but I don't think it's a significant consideration. It's already being reported that the cap could go to 80 mil in 3 years.
57% of 3 billion is 1.71 billion.
50% of 3 billion is 1.5 billion.
If revenue increases by 10% to 3.3 billion
57% of 3.3 is 1.881 billion
50% of 3.3 is 1.65 billion
The difference in growth is only 21 million. Spread across 30 teams, that's not that much.
