The slot position is likewise off the line of scrimmage and therefore harder to jam.
There's a specific number of players that HAVE to be on the LOS. Motioning a player does nothing to effect who and how many you can get that jam off of... a SE will still be an SE and a Flanker will still be a flanker...

You also didn't mention the MLB coverage. Don't you think we would need a MLB who had elite coverage skills to really make this work?

Again, what you are advocating is blitzing nearly every down with at least one extra guy, and that comes with serious problems. No matter what formation you use.
Clearly you dont understand this.

It's specifically DESIGNED to help coverage limitations by attacking the pocket...
