It wouldn't work if the lower level teams were also expected to continue serving as development grounds for the higher levels though. There would be a built-in disincentive to building a strong AAA team, because you might be building your direct competition for the following season.

That's the problem - transitioning from the current system in baseball of MLB plus farm systems. It's not as straightforward as it would be in MLS since there is no farm system relationship among member clubs (and MLS really does need to go to a multi-tiered league system with promotion/relegation if they're going to keep adding so many expansion clubs every year, like they're doing).
