What about starts from 15-0. At least we can avoid fake MTO.

Bathroom break in the middle of the set also should have penalty of losing a point.
If a point penalty would do it then I'd be happy with that but I suspect that it might take a couple. I'm not saying a player should have to take a penalty to call a MTO, just that that they should have to incur one if they want to call a MTO before their opponent's serve.
