The point if the rule is to protect base runners, not bail out bad fielding.
the runners are caught between staying on their base (and being thrown out at the next base if the ball drops) and advancing to the next base (and being thrown out at the previous base if the ball is caught). The fielder would likely have the opportunity to turn a one-out fly ball into a double-play, based on which option the runners committed to.
Not sure if this is serious, but ... the batter and the baserunners are on the same team. It wouldn't make any sense for the runners not to advance when they have opportunity to do so.
