See, the problem I would run into with creating an LA variant is that LA between two equally powered but disparate races frequently have different existing LAs. There's no consistency in the existing system, and therefore--in order to feel I'd been thorough--I'd have to go through and handle everything on a case-by-case basis.

Really, half of the problem with the LA system is that there's no consistency between LAed creatures. The other half is that LA is a bad system in and of itself, since it's a player-punisher instead of a player-empowerer.
