I don't think I'd favour doing away with the rule of losing chips for playing all your cards. Being able to lose penalty chips instead of gain them keeps the game interesting, and also gives players who are behind a chance to catch up in the last round or two. So being able to lose chips is a good rule that helps keep everyone in the game.
My only issue with this rule is that players should also be able to benefit from it in the first round - hence the suggestion to have everyone begin the game with five penalty chips.
