If the new reality was, You're Going To Pay For Them Anyway, I think more GMs would at least field teams.
And this would allow the next obvious step -- If you're MinL team isn't full, the SIM will sign players. Since the money is already set aside, there's no issue with the SIM having to decide where to get the money from.

I'm not the only one telling you that your idea stinks out loud. Does that count for anything?
But here's a thought: Level salary minimums that are set aside. I'm quite sure it would be a ***** to program and would certainly hurt more than it would help(sort of like your suggestions). But, if you don't have 3.1m available for minor league signings, you can't make moves. That's 20 players at each level making the minimum for that level.
