I would much rather encourage the kind of players who show up knowing how to play and ready to collaborate with each other and me when making compatible and appropriate characters than the kind who insists on making characters in a vacuum and refuses to learn the basics of the game system.
Okay, you're not into the idea. Noted. For you, there is buying the entire box set. Which exists. Your problem is solved.

But, again, there would be people who are into the idea. People who would normally pass entirely based on cost alone. The 8 people in my group, for example, for whom finances might be an issue. And this would encourage them to spend some money. On GURPS. Which is a good thing.
A man said to the universe:
"Sir I exist!"
"However," replied the universe,
"The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation."
