I have played at a few few fields that have had a mandatory surrender rule and really have never been a big fan of it. It's a noble idea on paper where noone gets shot at close range if they don't want to be and everyone is happy but as the OP described, there are situations where it just doesn't work that well. I have seen too many arguments and people getting upset over weird surrender/not surrender/get shot while asking for surrenders than from close range hits. Good refs make it better but it just seems like it dulls down the game a bit. At the field I play at now, the surrender rule is used as a courtesy to newer players but isn't really a required thing. The refs will kick people for aggressively bunkering new or younger players but otherwise, it's pretty much just expected for people to be responsible otherwise they leave.
My feedback:

FYI: USPS Flatrate IS the same price when shipping to Alaska...
