Several people kicked around some ideas. I listed these four problems:
1) IT'S NOT FUN!
2) The monster doesn't seem to derive any benefit. Contrast with Drain Mana.
3) (or maybe 2a) The immediate effect on the player is negligible.
4) Above CL 50 it can be really useless

But others had more interesting ideas on it than I did.
