Illegal 1NT

An experienced local payer opened this 1NT (15/17)

West
K4
J
AQJ853
KQ54

The director called the ACBL rulings department. The bid was deemed illegal (a singleton Q, K and A are legal) and offered the following remedy, which I found to be quite surprising!

A warning should be given on the first offence.

1/4 board penalty on the 2nd offence

Barring for a period of time on successive offences.
