But this is only for the top-level available in a given league. So if 5.0 is the top-level available, a 5.0 team can field two 5.5 players, but a 4.5 team cannot field 2 5.0 players. So it won't really muddle things at all in the 3.5 to 4.5 levels.
But to the other point about introducing quarter point levels, that should in theory make competition a bit more even and avoid players being stuck in the lower half of a level where they lose more than they win, but it would also result in players being bumped up or down a lot more often.
