This would mean that a take foul on a breakaway would result in typically, a layup plus a foul accrued. No reason to do it if they're just going to score anyway AND you get the foul.
Of course, this would result in the proverbial "free play", which, if there isn't an obvious lane to the basket would clearly be a three. So, if that's too generous to the offense, maybe the offense gets five seconds of continuation to take a shot within the context of the play being run. But that's kind of subjective.
