Default The Effects Of High Resistance Interconnects

In an effort to discover the next great interconnect cable I have thought of something.

Spark plug wire is designed to eliminate EMI & RFI in car electronics.
The resistance per foot is extreme though (2.2kΩ-10kΩ).
What would be the problem with this really high resistance in the interconnect be?

I did this with carbon fiber in the early 1980s when I was naive enough to believe it would make a difference. Van den Hul did it a few years later as a commercial product. Much hassle, little payoff.
