If a user quits (disc/rage/kick/time out), anyone in the team should be able to invite a friend to take the spot and continue the match fairly.

Don't see why not, I'd like this. Maybe put a 1 minute "invite window" after the 5 mins are up.

Balance wouldn't work and it'd get abused a lot.
A team of 4 friends playing, with 1 pub, a friend of theirs come online, they kick the pub invite the friend.

Players that want to improve their reputation in the game and community will also be able to help out by joinin
