This is true, and could be tried.  Phil Hands is a good one to talk to
about this.  Other people in the past have tried to work up similar
schemes.  However, the allocation procedure is a bit tangential to
this thread.

*I think we should keep this thread to money issues, and a later
thread can discuss how to evaluate people.*

( Otherwise, we'll get distracted, not have money early, so once we
get around to "we have money to allocate", it is so late, and we are
so rushed we just use the old system.  Yes, that's about the status
quo.  (Of course, if DC13 has oodles of money very early on, it's a
different situation, but then you really will have no problems.) )
