I thought the same things watching it. I can imagine though, if it was a rule to be interpreted, that you'd end up with what looked like a crash in the bunch and some riders saying it was one person's fault and they should lose time etc. The times when you get the Schachmann situation are rare enough for a blanket rule not to throw up significant controversies.
The UCI have not, indeed, been consistent. Maybe we can spend the next few months examining that in greater depth, give that we will have no actual racing to talk about.
