Question Fingers in the eyes

I'd like some opinions on finger-in-the-eye situations, especially on the ground.

Often I see fighters in top-position just putting their open hand in the face of their opponents, seemingly just hoping for an "accidental" eye poke. It's legal, of course, but I think it shouldn't be.

Same goes for open palm jabs and reach finders. there should be a point reduction after 2 warnings max.

I see eye poking as a more fight-threatening problem than low blows and I think there should be a few rules that reduce the risk of them happening.
