I have some understanding for Ton's sentiment.
David's suggestion seems quite sensible, not at all "stupid".
When my LHO decides to think for a long while before (penalty-)doubling 
me, and RHO does not have a clear-cut take out, then the expected value 
of my score goes up from +620 to +790. Why should that same expected 
score go down again (to +705) when RHO illegally takes it out?
Was that what you were aiming for, David?
