Actually under the proposed system that's probably become even more of a problem. Currently, winning a later round is worth more than a early round. Under the proposed system, four round wins in the weekend will be worth the same no matter when they are (actually, you'd want to lose the final because there's no chance to stage after it). Current system rewards you more for winning a later round, admittedly not by much.

The difference between the final win and loss is about half a round under the current system, and that wouldn't change under the proposed system.
If the concern is that there isn't a big enough gap between first and second, honestly I'd leave things as they are, and simply add a bonus to the final winner (probably equal to the number of entries, or 10 for staging in the "next" round).
