It would protect one player's rating if the other bombs for any reason.
I also don't like it when someone gets timed out in several games, then
takes a win over me. The rating as it is in the beginning of the game should
be used to protect from that. The possibility that someone gets timed out in
several games, then wins and his/her rating just pops right back up because
the rating at the beginning of the game is used, is not as bad as it is now.
Now the player who gets timed out a lot pops back halfway, but the other
player drops to a ridiculously low rating and has to start working his/her way
