It's too much to ask of the refs I think.
Agreed. In real time it's hard to call unless it's truly blatant. After the fact fines would do the trick...maybe scale it up to a one game suspension if you repeat enough.

As Prongo mentioned though, high sticking would be hard to enforce. How much of it is instinct trying to get you away from the object coming at your face?
