Action cancelling on "bumpy" terrain improvement request

Like Alex said on his "by design things" post, some actions are cancelled on bumpy terrain. Pay close attention, blink and you'll miss it. But don't worry, I made the second half of the video in slow motion so you can see better:

So... this seems kind of by design to me. What's happening here is that actions done mid-air (such as punching) are cancelled when you land on the ground before the animation is finished, which makes a bit of sense. But in these situations shown in the video, which happen very often, it could get annoying. I only float mid air for like 2 or 3 frames, so maybe this could be polished up a little to make the controls and movement smoother, more responsive.

I don't have many ideas on how to polish this up. Maybe the game could automatically restart the action if only 2-4 frames were cancelled, or maybe swap to the "ground version" animation of the action, starting from the corresponding frame where it stopped...?

Moving this to the suggestion topic.
