So pretty much you have the exact same effect now, but with items like zeal or vamp-scepter... actually I think it may involve more strategy.
Do I leave a lane I am winning to go get those items, missing potential cs? And will the tables turn if I stay and my opponent comes back with a few dorans blades or pots/boots? Basically you have the exact same situation, but potentially many more times during the course of a game, rather than maybe once or twice.
And since riot nerfed cs in the lane for more passive gold(hate this, I think it marginalizes skill to a certain degree) they would become absolute stalemates with no ganks, and hyper carries only in the jungle, and who wants that?
