That would not make "those newbies" much safer on the road but would scare and/or injure quite a few of them. Counterproductive methinks.
Tell you what - Why don't you contact MSF and suggest your change to them? You'd be bypassing tens of thousands of hours of curriculum development, debate, refinement, and millions of hours of ridercoach experience. Someone might give you an award for such an innovative and novel idea.
