"Here are the things you CAN'T do. If you do them and someone gets hurt, the BSA will not stand behind you, your leaders, or your CO. The council insurance policy will not cover these activities."

I think that it's not liability behind the ban, but rather, PR. I suspect it is a way to show that scouting values life as part of their values. Perhaps they thought this necessary because they have made themselves a lightning rod on other social issues.
