Yep. It's a big issue with many of our kids. They literally power clean the weight off their chest. Not a bench press when that happens.

Powerlifting rules for bench: Feet have to remain in contact with the floor and can't move from the initial position. Buttocks must remain in contact with the bench. Bar must come to a complete stop before a "Press" command is given.

Guys whose butt comes way off the bench...you can easily subtract 15-20 pounds off what they say they bench.
Agreed. I hate the back arch bench.

I tried it once to see what it was like. I pulled a lumbar trying it.

Well...there does need to be a slight arch. Shoulders and butt only should be on bench but certainly you don't want this:

With that being said, it is a legal technique in virtually all powerlifting federations as it is within the rules. I don't have any problems with the technique being used in a powerlifting meet because the object is to lift the most weight.

My biggest gripe is kids whose hips come way off the bench on the concentric contraction. The bar comes down and then they catapult the bar up with their hips. Maybe that is a decline press but certainly not a legit bench press.
