Season rewards are based on max elo so the only thing this accomplishes is misrepresenting players for the duration of s3.
This is like slightly devaluing borders vs complete denial.

Imagine if plat was 1850 and there could only be so many plats at one time, say 5000. So you're sitting at 1900 elo but you dont get plat b/c you're # 5001.
You should get what you earn. This is like the diamond cartel.

Can't you already see borders? In the very least, in normal blind pick I've seen silver borders on the enemy team.

I don't want the opponents to see that I have a diamond border.

If I'm playing on a ranked 5s team and I'm the only one with Diamond, their team is going to do anything they can to shut me down.

It changes the game. Players will focus certain players over certain characters.

Something like this would be worrisome.

lolking exists so your point is invalid.

Basically if you can see your enemy team's borders all it does is encourage generally unsportsmanlike behavior with chat and it encourages people to single out the lowest rated players and constantly focus on them for "free kills".
