I'm not a particularly big fan of any of those, especially since making Flying Pokemon immune to them completely ruins the point of SR.

If anything, apply a damage cap.

Other: I say it should only affect Flying-types or Pokemon with the Levitate ability.

Generally speaking, whenever someone talks about Stealth Rock being too strong, it's not because it totally nullifies Focus Sash or Sturdy, or because it renders Flying, etc. Pokemon harder to use, or because it's too strong a payoff for a single move, or because anything but Charizard.

It should OHKO every Pokemon except Charizard!

On a more serious note, maybe it can be made like Future Sight except activate on entry
