Simpler in the way that the rules don't change from drive to putt, so yes you would still require supporting point behind the mark.
The fairway violation problem is easiest solved by making the mark you have to hit be so huge there would be no logical reason tho miss it.
The problem is you are trying to solve problems that have nothing to do with the rules by making the rules more complex. None of these problems are caused by the rules being difficult to enforce, but by requiring players that are either ill equipped to enforce them, ot not interested in enforcing them to do exactly that.
