Thanks Opti for this excellent post.

I agree refs should expect players to know the laws and there is no need to "coach" them during play.
I would still keep the "use it" warning though- it is the ref's decision when, in his opinion, the ball has become playable, so to avoid accusations of inconsistency, the ref should still be required to state that it is time to play. Otherwise, totally agree.
