A melee kill in airsoft is if you can pretty much touch a person with your hand. Using a rubber knife for a melee kill adds another element, but that element does not require all the variables that would come with that of a real knife. In my mind a tag is a tag, you dont have to poke someone in the jugular with your rubber knife for it to be legitimate.
I agree, I really wouldn't want someone trying to stab me in the throat with rubber knife. All the knife does is add another realiastic element in the game. All the guy has to do is tap you and you are out, he doesn't need to jab the knife into a vital spot of your body.
