I agree that it's a little weak, but the coaches are just policing themselves. It's completely impractical to have a 3rd-party check every stick that each team may use; that would be hundreds. The fact that they'd most assuredly be called for it if they curved their sticks significantly is likely the main reason why they don't curve them more than they do. They'd possibly curve them in a semi-circle if they could get away from it because the law was never enforced. If what's happening now isn't desirable, then the rules need to be changed to restrict it from happening. "Unspoken" rules just aren't suitable for sports in this day and age, where doing everything to win (i.e. pushing the rules) is the name of the game.
