Yes, it would be. However, Casino Center is the southbound part of a one-way couplet (4th St being the northbound counterpart) providing one of the most efficient routes through downtown Las Vegas. Without this half interchange, the Las Vegas Blvd interchange is the only direct freeway access to the downtown core. Even the Las Vegas Blvd interchange is probably still too close to I-15 to meet modern recommendations for spacing between a service interchange and a system interchange.

Today's Spaghetti Bowl has C/D roadways in most directions, and this is the only leg lacking any.

Yeah.  Downtown LV is a significant enough location that it simply cannot be bypassed.  There may be ways to construct the interchange better to handle the weaving, but access to these exits in some way or fashion is critical.
