Not a good idea. One team starts losing, so they all go afk and deny the other team the win.
No one would ever gain any elo, or lose any for that matter.
Talk about poorsportsapproved.c

This is why the reporting system exists (refusing to cooperate with team, perhaps verbal abuse).
Also on this note, the best system I can think of to solve the problems involved in ELO loss due to trolls, afkers, etc is to have an appeal system in which players can submit request to have their elo for a given game returned, such as having an afk player or 2 players locking in junglers, etc.
