Because part of your agreement when purchasing the game (client) is that you will not modify it and while pretty weak, legally, I am not sure if any such agreements have ever been challenged in court, it's probably not the best idea to try it out

10. Bug abuse and exploits
10.2 Exploiting is defined as the commission of an action within the game to circumvent or alter the normal functions of the said game.
So yes, it is an exploit.

Everyone is under the assumption that it is not considered an exploit (there are people that think it is an exploit, but they are also aware that you do not consider it one, like most servers). It is considered "skill" to be able to do it.
So what is the difference to backpeddling in water? Don't get me wrong, i am not trying to advocate to allow it. I want to suggest to list the known exploits in the rules, with a disclaimer "this list is not exhaustive" and while there would still be other cases, it would be easy for anyone new to spot what is forbidden and what isn't.
