Cleaning up the Vault

Let's offer a couple rules changes for summer and club meets.  I watched these ideas work well when I visited Earl Bell's house in Arkansas.

First, Every Vaulter gets ONE Mulligan in the competition.
Second, If you swear, it is a miss.
Third, If you land on your feet, it is a miss.  (most injuries are ankles)
Fourth, If you don't ask for your step (or mid-mark if you prefer), it is a miss.
Fifth, someone catches your pole, or ALL other vaulters get a miss.

If you clear the bar, land on your feet and don't check your step
  OXX  and you get to jump at the next height

If you miss, land on your feet, swear, and don't check your step
  XXXX  and you go home.

Your thoughts?

I like the ideas!  If someone swears more than once on any particular height, we can have Milton take them out back and tear them a new one.  By the way, which words constitute swearing[?]
