It's good for the game if Bounties are just rewarding enough to be worth doing, and no more. If the Bounty reward is too much then killing monsters feels bad in comparison - you're encouraged to do the absolute minimum completion goal of each Bounty and then get out of there as fast as possible to speedrun the next one. Bounties are ultimately just an excuse to get people into new zones doing new things, there's no need for them to be the primary source of all exp and loot.
I see where you are coming from, and I partially agree with you.
The other side of the coin however is that if you remove almost all of the reward from Bounties, wouldn't you simply avoid them altogether ? If you can simply stay where you are killing mobs in Act 5 lets say, or just farm bosses for 10-15 minutes, why would you decide to go after the bounty if you have to keep wasting time going back and forth between different areas, then back to town 5 times before collecting a reward that MAY give you a few more pieces of vendor trash. After all, I guess it is merely speculation at this point, but Iit just seems like too great of a nerf right off the bat.
