I am going to go all contrarian again.
First it is still not clear precisely what Party are doing and "segregation by win rate" is just an assumption to date. Indeed the only statement Party have made is that new players are free to choose any table.
Second the usual refrain is that regulation should be minimal and that a market system offering choice is the preferred way to keep sites in line. Banning player pools or leagues would be a step beyond regulation to protect the vulnerable, the underage, game operation, protecting consumer balances or any reasonable area where regulation is justified. this is a business decision, a marketing decision with a site wanting to appeal to a specific niche market. Controlling that is way beyond a regulatory remit.
Finally. We face a situation where one site has a near monopoly. Restricting smaller competitors from following their business plan to compete with that monopoly would not be in the interests of players, competition or freedom.
