I wouldn't like a policy like that because it changes the way I would officiate the game. The level of tolerance for a technical to be called would have to be much higher. In fact, this well-intentioned policy could lead to more abuse because officials will put up with more before penalizing and it could be disruptive to the league if a single ref decided he likes to call a lot of technicals. Good idea, well-intentioned, but the rules of basketball were set up as they were for a reason. One possiblity though, is the chance of suspension for multiple technicals over the course of a season.
