Currently it's fairly easy to tell if a foot is on the line of play right behind the mini. But if someone doing a run-up releases "about five feet" behind the mini, it will be much harder to discern if he was actually on the line of play or 1' off to the side; or whether he was really 5' or 6' behind the mini.
