If you do it per download tracks downloaded by themselves count as more doanloads, so make more money?
They way they divide up money from CDs ultimately depends on negotiated contract terms between performers and publisher, not applicable in an imposed system. They also only need to divide up revenues from a particular work or person's work - not between different performer's works.
Also, you can be sure that any scheme imposed by governments will heavily favour exactly the same people who back SOPA and PIPA.
Yes, its relatively simple compared to the current disaster, but it still a long way from a satisfactory solution.
