I'm not sure I understand your point here.
Let's say that you're on PS and are considering playing an MTT. There's a tourney in late reg. that you can join, or another tournament starting in 10 minutes at similar stakes. You're going to buy into either one or both of those events anyway, so you've already made up your mind to play.
In essence PS has already made their money, so how are they maximizing their take? I'm making the assumption that PS does not treat each event as a single make or break situation, but rather a point in time over the long haul.
Same philosophy as a player treating each hand or each playing session not as a single make or break event but rather as part of an ongoing event over the life of your poker career.
