The Colts Incentive

The NFL is considering incentives to get teams to play their starters even when the season is a lock.  One idea in the article is additional draft picks based on the team's win-loss record... but isn't the draft set up to empower weaker teams to keep balance in the league?

As far as incentives go, perhaps losing draft picks for sitting out your starters would be better for the league than gaining picks for playing your starters. But who will determine when a play is hurt enough to sit out without penalty?
