I hear what you are saying and the problem is that competitors are openly suggesting customers go to stores. This is the practice that should be stopped. Getting all flaky about MAP isn't the solution.
If the goal is to stop these cheap prices from getting indexed by search engines then require the item to be added to a shopping cart before price is displayed such that search engines can't index the prices and leave it at that.
