The baggage issues is what leads to the stampedes at the gates and long and frustrating boarding processes.

Seriously UA, it's time to clean it up and stop letting some people take advantage of the system while screwing other pax who comply!!!
I could not agree with you on another thread, but you have it right on this issue. The biggest abusers seems to be those sitting in FC. Checking for luggage size is so rare that it is unfair. Do it consistently and the rules will be followed.
