Let me turn that question back around...

Why should a casual player be forced to compete against an experienced player? What's his incentive for even staying in the match?

OR, why should an experienced player get stuck playing against a casual player who's no challenge at all?

Is that fun for anybody who isn't kill-happy?

Of course an experienced player is normally going to beat an inexperienced player, all other things being equal. I expect that. I welcome that.

What I don't welcome is any system that removes any incentive at all to play it.

A PvP rating of some sort would help to group players according to PvP skill. It could also be used to balance teams so that the overall experience is roughly equal. That's what I'd like to see.
