Right, this is why in reality when a FF is called during the matches I've seen without an official, it was in fact pretty flagrant. The server was either already stepping on the line (obviously) before starting the serve or if they drag their foot into the court during the serve. Otherwise everybody was focused on the return.

I agree with this Bartelby. But I believe the motivation comes with losing points from being called for foot faulting. Without enforcement, people lack the impetus and drive to change and improve.
