You can't allow emergency recalls because you MIGHT have an emergency IMO. You either have one, or you don't. No maybes.
I agree, this would be a great starter towards weeding out fake emergency recalls, although it wouldn't solve the problem of teams resting players in the final games by evading the limit on the number of recalls. I guess the latter is just something the league turns a blind eye to willingly, though.
