It's not a garbage time TD anymore as a quick score and you're not looking at a miracle onside kick to salvage something. :40 to go ~30-35 yards is pretty doable.
Hell, you have a free Hail Mary shot on that down if you need it.

I don't hate it, but I don't really like it either. Imagine a punt with a roughing the punter penalty...automatic first down. And while there are injuries on kick returns...I bet it's still a minority of returns, especially with all the touchbacks. Most kick returns don't hurt anyone.
