Rut is right. This needs to be a violation rather than a T.
But the question about penalizing the defense remains...

It would be a great way for the defense to stop the clock in an end of game situation. Just run around out of bounds till the ref blows his whistle.

We could just use common sense: if we judge the defense gained no advantage over the offense, or, that the offense would be disadvantaged by a play stoppage, then no call. Otherwise, well, violation?
