Neck Crank: Should it be banned?

Guys, I am a huge fan of Demian Maia and his techinique and as much I loved how he tooled Rick Story to a perfect finish, I was wondering about the risks of that maneuver.

It's a perfectly legal move today, but if you consider Big Nog had his arm broken for delaying the tap and also Miesha Tate had her arm trashed for the same reason, Rick Story could be very dead right now or paralized forever if delayed the tap. What if he went out in the process and suddenly relaxed his muscles?

The scary name says it all: Neck crank.

What do you think?
