If I can choose between two similar affiliate programs, I'll go w/ the one that doesn't allow affiliates to offer incentives because I won't & I probably can't compete w/ those that do. There are tons of sites out there that do what you're thinking of already & from what I've seen, more and more affiliate programs are not allowing that practice to continue w/in their terms.
The worst offenders are those that popped up after the hurricanes, claiming to donate a certain percentage of their commissions to charity w/ no proof. Even the ones that aren't scams usually aren't very ethical.
