We tried out the auction rules listed in the game variants and got the following results.

The game play led to higher scores for everyone, because no one ever threw out letters. Putting up letters for auction led to lower prices being paid, and one player buying up 3 sets of letter for word making mayhem. Also getting a bad set was not nearly as bad since you could just try to buy another set that turn to get some vowels.

In short, it was good, but leads to a very different kind of play. Maybe a little tinkering could make it a smoother fit though.
