To put it another way, it's like being in a lifeboat at sea with 10 shipwreck survivors. Two of them are doing almost 70% of the rowing, and yet the group decides that the best way to get that boat to move even faster towards an island in the distance is to get those two people to row even harder, while the rest do nothing different, or even row less than before?

Even if you argue that the two at the front do honestly have bigger muscles than everyone else, and thus could theoretically handle increases in load better, wouldnt it be in the best interest for everyone if the others in the boat all try and row a bit harder too, even if they know their stroke still wont be quite as powerful as the two at the front?

I guess in an election where all votes count the same, the 2 strongest at the front have no chance against the 8 at the back.
