The kind of stalling that you are refering to, in my opinion, does not exist when the guy that is getting stalled upon can punch the stallee in the face. That's just my opinion though, and understand/respect that yours is different. By the way, I know that stallee isn't a word, at least I don't think it is.
From the bottom, ones punches are devalued. So that isn't an option. Besides sweeps and subs, the bottom opponents actions are completely devalued under the current rules
I feel like we are at an impasse, so this is where I humbly bow out.
