Why is Nastia Liukin’s faceplant a big deal?

It’s not like she fell some 20 feet to the hard concrete below.  She fell a max of 10 feet on what appears to me to be 1 1/2 to 2 feet of padding.  Big Deal!  Why is there a spotter if there are pads?  Either do away with the spotter or do away with the pads.  Rant over.
