Will the new F1 grid penalty rules work?

At the final FIA World Motor Sport Council meeting of the year it was confirmed any driver who exceeds 15 grid place penalties will be automatically forced to start from the back of the grid, effectively ending the huge number grid penalties seen in recent seasons.

With the confusing numbers of 25, 30, or even 55 grid drops seen last season for engine changes scrapped will it help F1 end its confusing penalty rules? 

Has the FIA’s rule change been the right one? Or should the engine grid drop penalties be altered altogether in a new format?
