This is the only scenario I see that potentially increases the value of miles. If a significant subset (those earning primarily or a majority of RDM through flying) are earning less RDM and thus using miles less frequently, I can see that there might be less "competition" for Saver awards making these easier to secure. Unless, of course, AA reduces the amount of Saver awards commensurately.
