Neat idea, but ideas like this never catch on. We shouldn't have to come up with a system to get around SE's oversight, Lets just get them to tag the prices as +1/2/3 like they should have done in the first place.
It's really nothing new: SE generally implements partially-broken, bare-bones systems and then sets them aside as "finished forever."
People need to use "illegal" programs in FFXI just to change their font, or to put timers on their buffs -- at least FFXIV figured that out from the start. You would think that, with the speed SE tries to suppress third-party programs, they would at least *look*
at the reason so many people downloaded them... maybe take some ideas (or, in wondower's case, copy some **** code!)? XD
