This is a well thought-out and reasonable proposal that should be adopted. While the referee already has the authority to impose technical warnings, technical fouls and forfeits, as well as having the authority to determine unsportsmanlike conduct, adopting this proposal would bring uniformity to the manner in which the penalties are applied by all referees. Furthermore, the proposal clearly informs and forewarns all players, way before any match is played, about the consequences of repeatedly making inaccurate line calls.

An additional benefit of adopting the proposed rule is that it also serves as a good reference for referees when officiating non-pro matches. While currently only pro matches are officiated with the additional human and technical resources that allow for the proper implementation and application of this proposed rule, it presents a reasonable standard to aim for, while taking into account that resources and accuracy are much more limited when a referee is officiating solo.
