I suspect the change in the way the holiday boss encounters are accessed was done for a variety of reasons. Preventing ninjas was obviously part of why Blizzard chose to do it. But a secondary purpose, I believe, was to STOP players from farming these bosses for their rare drops in exactly the way you describe. Leveling the playing field does not equal "unfair punishment". Every day, each of the characters you play have the same shot at getting the rare loot no matter how many friends you have or how many characters you've leveled to the cap. Seems pretty fair to me.A third reason (although non-loot related) that I think Blizzard made these changes was a result of the constant griefing on PVP servers at the holiday encounter's instance gate - another welcome change, in my book.
