I'm pretty sure randomizing supply tiles has been tried a number of times, if only because people have often thought that was the correct rule. I don't think it would break anything, per se, but it would prevent you from planning ahead as carefully (knowing when that interest payment is due is pretty important early on) and add a bit more chaos/luck.

LOL! I just played this weekend (for the 6th time) and just discovered the rule that you do NOT randomize each round. Yep, I was one of them you note.

Ahhhhh! Made it much easier to plan.

The planning is also important if you are hoping to grab 2 Iron or Cattle at once. Knowing when the various Offer spaces reach "critical mass" is often an important consideration in deciding when to take an offer space or hold out for a future action.

I might consider trying the bonus good for taking an Offer next to your Ship variant. We'll see if anyone in my group is willing to try it.
