Sounds good to me -- and the "may" in "may take one card" protects 
the catcher from becoming the catchee for failing to observe the
catch-other-players rule... (as long as they remember the other

...but you might want to be more explicit on what "experienced" 
entails, since in general, Fluxx card rules are supposed to be 
complete on the card, i.e. no separate definitions required,
which is one of the chief advantages of Fluxx over most other 
card games -- you only have to read rules on cards in play, in
order to know all of the rules that apply at that moment

If there are exceptions, feel free to rules-lawyer me; I can 
take it!

New Rule: "Optical Illusion"
In the event that any player catches another experienced player in the act
of failing to observe every rule, in it's entirety, either through amnesia
or myopia, the observant player may take one card from the other player's
hand at any time that player has cards. The observant player may disregard
hand-limit rules until it is their turn, for that one card only.

What do you think?
