Yeah, the wording could be better. I made the post fairly quick. Grass and brush would have to be considered. It would have to be further defined by no supporting contact in front of the lie prior to release or something like that.
In regards to the two feet issue, I disagree that it is hugh advantage. As long as a player doesn't run up, jump, and throw, meaning only starting the throwing motion from the lie. The release timing would be the equalizer in making it fair. Have you ever tried to accurately make a putt in mid air while jumping? It is very hard. Of course, enough practice could improve the technique. Yes, the two feet could have advantage in getting around obstacles by giving a player a chance at making a shot that would otherwise not be there. Players with longer arms and a better skill base also have an advantage.
Also, 20 meters would be too far out to have to show balance after a throw. 15 meters would be more fair if the rules were to be modified to allow jump putting (releasing the disc past your lie with no run-up).
