In my opinion, the fault with this lies with judges and attorneys. When judges stretch plain meaning to fit a result (which, granted does not happen as often as some claim), they box themselves in a corner when the next issue is just a tiny bit outside the previous line drawn. It becomes easier to stretch the law just a little bit more. If you stick with the plain issue, there is no stretching. Sure, people get upset, but government does not exist to give everyone a good day.
I also fault attorneys because it seems that business pressures have removed the ability to tell a client, "No." I can fault attorneys because I am one. I know some collegues that would file suit for anything.
