Creating a rule to properly account for those super long term, cap manipulative deal brings balance and fairness back to those deals. I believe it would be looked at as a proper correction, and not a penalty.
Except that teams wouldn't have signed deals that long if they knew there was going to be a 'correction' so it is in fact a penalty, and one given after the fact.
