Not saying you're wrong, I'm genuinely interested by the potential rationale behind it.
I will start saying that I do not even like exclusive picks draft system.
1) I think Bans are also bad for the game in general. Why we have bans?
Bans are Aid-band fix for Riot or any game designer of games. If something is broken it should be fixed, not just add bans so you can temporarily ban the problem.
Giving more bans to the game is just telling riot is ok to Aid-ban fix the problem instead of actually solving it.
2) If someone has amazing play with a champion, the fact i just can ban the problem instead of facing it, seems terrible for strategy development, also terrible for spectators. "X have the best Leblanc ever,is amazing, sadly no one can even see it because if anyone suspects they are facing him or knows, they just ban it"
It discentivize really improving with a champion because if you become really good at it, people can just ban it against you.
3)I think players should be able to pick what they want as often as possible.
Let's say that there are a few champs that really break the game and we need some safeguard against that because riot will not focus that much interest i dominion, 2 bans per side allow the team that do not first pick to control the bans so they are not in a terrible position. Like today, I find the only broken champs are Kassadin, Teemo and Jayce. Second pick can ban Kassadin only, so if first team picks Teemo or jayce they can get the other. No matter the number of champs you consider "broken" second pick can always ban properly and be left with equal or more "broken champs".
(note this wouldn't even be a problem if there were NOT exclusive picks, but I guess that's a war is lost at this point)
So for all those reasons I think 2 bans per side is more than enough.
Note*: I created a thread about "how to improve dominion" that was thought for ranked play.
