Well, technically you are right. You could implement that sort of machanism in beta but you cannot maintain it when going live. People have paid for the usage of the servers to play the game and you cannot throw them out because they went to the loo with the newspaper.
So you have to implement it for beta and then patch it out again when going live which is a bit of wasted time. And all you can achieve with it is the prevention of situations that can and will happen when being live and the server capacity needed when being live is what you want to check with the beta.
