You seem to be saying you want a rule that would require neither
thought nor judgment to apply.  Perhaps that would be a good idea if
we lacked thought and judgment.  But when that day comes, we won't
have a distributing worth crap either, since that also takes thought
and judgment.

There is no good reason to box ourselves in unnecessarily.
