Good point, but it's not that simple.
First, there's BRM issues. it's fun to play 50NL against a fish unless you are not rolled for 50NL and a bad beat is a significant blow to your BR.
Then, when you double up, it's usually because Mr fish just lost his stack to you, so his stack is still only $25 and you're still playing 25NL against the fish. But if there are good players at the table with big stacks, then your'e playing 200BB deep against them.
Also, the deeper you play the more easy it is for short stackers to exploit you, so their presence or not affects your decision.
When i double up i don't always leave and i don't always stay. I reevaluate the table and consider effective stack sizes against all my oppoenents.
