I don't like that idea - it will lead to accusations of unfair choices with managers accused of giving their friends a place in the draw.
I don't agree with wildcards fullstop, my ranking is 140 and I have no right whatsoever to a wildcard to an ATP event until I earn it with a higher ranking or by qualifying by right.
