"Judiciously broad in scope" is an understatement. It's like saying you can make up the rules as you go along.
"Gentlemen, we are going to relentlessly chase perfection, knowing full well we will not catch it, because nothing is perfect. But we are going to relentlessly chase it, because in the process we will catch excellence. I am not remotely interested in just being good."

Thankfully, that is essentially the message being sent, to avoid endless dispute.  However, as we should all understand, and accept, there is a heavy responsibility, with appropriate consequences, associated with invoking this rule, that it is ONLY used judiciously.

And all accepted penalty flags result in the offending player having to sing the "I'm Sorry" song.

not only are the players in the wrong positions, but aren't the officials also in the wrong places for a free kick...

Of course, there's a somewhat likely possibility that even a reasonably attentive referee, or member of his crew, would recognize the abnormality of what was unfolding, and simply STOP play, to verify what was going on, get EVERYONE on the right page and "play on".
