The only times I have seen a footfault called the server was easily footfaulting enough that it could be clearly seen from the other side of the court with 100% confidence.
I don't know what else could be done other than to believe them and move back.
I also agree that the code would completely break if someone is incorrectly calling footfaults out of lack of knowledge of the rules. Just because someone is 100% sure doesn't mean they are correct. If I ever saw this then maybe I would feel differently. For me everytime a footfault has been called the server was convinced they weren't doing it even though it was obvious that they were.
