What kind of incentive can you give to farm for an item when you can get it with just one click ?
If someone truly WANTS to play self-found then they will. There is NOTHING Blizzard can do to "incentivize" people who just want to be "done" and be "done" yesterday. There's no point in even trying to root out that behavior. This is a video game, not a social engineering project.
The only thing that matters is making self-found fun for people who actually want to play that mode. Trying to make it work for people who have absolutely zero will-power is a pie-in-the-sky dream.
Think of it this way. You go to your doctor and he tells you that you're 150 pounds overweight and you need to exercise and eat healthy otherwise you're at severe risk for a heart attack. Is it the doctor's fault if, every day on the way to work, you stop at Dunkin Donuts and get a half dozen donuts and eat them at your desk? He can only do so much for you before you have to man up and take some responsibility for yourself.
At some point, if people TRULY want to play self-found, they're going to have to man the fuck up and play self-found even if the AH is "easier." Blizzard cannot build failsafes against people who don't actually want to kill monsters aside from making all items BoA and that would go over like a lead balloon with the community. So let's ditch the idea that it's Blizzard's responsibility to not click the AH button for us.
It's amazing just how little responsibility people want to take for their own actions.
