They used to have that rule in football for a year or two - not sure if it was just trialled in the UK or was done worldwide. IFAB, in their infinite wisdom, decided that non-rugby playing countries wouldn't understand it and ditched it.
I remember Beckham complaining when a free-kick got moved closer because it made it harder for him to get the ball over the wall from a shorter distance - it wasn’t a great advantage in the end.
