I had the idea originally from Cricket.

(North Americans can stop here).

About 1970, experimental versions of the Leg Before Wicket and No-Ball 
Laws were tried in England. (I remember the 1972 Aussies had dreadful 
trouble with no-balls). In time these two became the substantive 
world-wide Laws. This idea could have been adapted to Variable Cover - 
and even Uncovered Odd Bells a decade before - but it seems that the 
powers that be then wanted full Decision Change for something, as RAS 
mentions, was, in my view, never likely to become main stream or even 
fifth-division stream!
