Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.
Like to play on a nice open board?
Want no one laying single tiles to form obscure 2 letter words in some weird cluster then implement the minimum tile lay variant - essentially agree a minimum level and players MUST lay that minimum amount or exchange tiles - of course once the bag is empty and all tiles are on racks and board then you could un-apply the rule. I suggest a minimum of 4 tiles
Of course if you prefer closed play apply a maximum tile lay (though of course this would make the 7 tile lay bonus void)
What's the point?
