I do not have a problem with the rule. Otherwise, the refs are being asked to make a judgment on the intent of the receiver -- whether he is starting a new act or completing the initial act of the catch. Under the current rule, all judgment is removed from the process. This is similar to the rule change a couple of years ago where the NFL eliminated the force-out rule for catches in or out of bounds. It removed judgment from the refs on whether the receiver would have come down in bounds.
