I'd argue against this for two reasons.
Current players even top RP players have their own files, and they are also quite varied.
The other reason i disagree with the copy theme is, mirror files are the most annoying thing to play, and if it was common you would see a lot of people stop. It's easier to think players may have some common themes for some of the top files but many of them will achieve them through different means. This is so they can avoid mirror matches, backlashes are something that can go on for quite awhile in a mirror match, and that isnt fun for anyone.
On another note, if people have more cards to play with they are often going to make different files anyways.
The restriction of cards is more the cause of the problem in my opinion. Think about it, all the starters for each sphere are the same. They begin with "copy files" If they had more cards, how fast do they change the file so its different to avoid backlash vs same files. Gowen rush is common even at high end, but other then a few "required" cards, you can see a lot of diversity once the iczer has acquired new cards. Making this easier, as well as profitable to the company is certainly not a bad thing.
