Touch-move rule in backgammon?

Hi all bg lovers.
In order to make backgammon more fair and attractive for top players I
will like to come with a suggestion.
In great tourneys it's common to use the clock when it's down to 16
opponents left. To expand, the way to favour the best players, I
would like backgammon to use the rule of chess. If you touch your
checker, you have to move it that is. This in a combo with the clock
would be refreshing and good.
I reckon that when they established the rules in chess there were some
noise and controversial discussions. Now they are used to it and only
small children play without a clock and even they use "the touching
rule" in serious chess tournaments.
