It seems like a good idea, except that I don't see what it would do that LoTW would do apart from avoiding having to pay per QSO fees for LoTW. (playing devil's advocate here).

Currently, self-printed QSLs (stations send you an image that you print yourself) are a not acceptable for DXCC credit.

There is a technical, and easy, solution to solve this:  place a QR code on the QSL, which contains a LoTW-key-encrypted QSO.  An example graphic is shown (ignore the code itself, just an example.)
If such a self-printed card was sent to the DXCC desk, it could be verified easily.
