We'd have to be careful to only apply the extra rating loss to the fast/slow rating and not the individual rating, since we don't want to accidentally incentivize being AFK for people who want to purposefully lower their rating (which wouldn't be smart regardless, but that is not easy to demonstrate).

Rather than extra rating loss, a penalty that is more sure to sting an AFKer would be to reduce their arena bonus rather than increase it.
