To deal with the problem of pool centralization, why wouldn’t this work?

Whichever pool has the largest hash rate when it gets a block reward, it rewards that specific pool slightly less than the normal block reward of what the reward would be otherwise, it'd be gentle, but that's enough to ensure people actually value the second largest pool for monetary reasons, which would inflate it and bring it up higher, which would lead to the development of tools to switch from the highest hash rate pool automatically.

I imagine there are some glaring holes in this idea, care to elaborate?
