Possible NCAA ruling on transgender athletes

According to an article in today's Chronicle of Higher Education,
An NCAA committee has suggested allowing a female athlete transitioning to male to play on a men’s team at any time, while a male athlete transitioning to female could compete with women so long as the athlete had undergone at least a year of treatment to suppress testosterone, the committee said. Athletes who do not seek hormone treatment would be permitted to compete for their "birth gender team".

In that I am not myself transgender, I can't address whether this is a good (potential) rule.
