For now, I definitely encourage this path.
A technical solution, if one exists, won't be implemented over the short term, though we're doing some investigating to see what it would take to address this concern for both PvP and STF maps (really, all public queues). Until we can determine what we can do, and whether or not we have the time & resources to implement it, the community will need to take the responsibility upon themselves to encourage better play habits.
I just wanted to let you all know that it's not off the radar to attempt to address this problem. It's far from being an easy fix, though.
