If I wanted my game to be taken seriously on the eSports/competitive scene I would likely want any event to have some legitimacy. Having an unfinished product takes away from that legitimacy by allowing current game issues to potentially affect the outcome of the competition. Since there is money involved people are going to be even more concerned that they are really getting a fair chance to win. That's why I would not do it on an unfinished product.
I'm quite sure that the tournaments during the Starcraft 2 beta did not make it any less serious esport...
