If you allow your opponent to mistakenly shoot the wrong ball you're a scumbag who only cares about winning, regardless of how it happens. You might as well steal your opponents cue before the match too. Absolutely zero sportsmanship.
From the other side, if you are an opponent that shoots the wrong ball you are a moron and may as well just walk into walls and slobber on the table. It's a nice thing to do but it's not close to being a scumbag if someone does not. Are you against 3 foul rules also since it makes the other player feel bad and you can win by playing a chickenshit game as some would call it? An opponent is in no way obligated to point out your mistakes or vice versa.
This is a match where the team is counting on the win to advance. If you help the opponent you are effectively going against what is best for your team. The other player and his team-mates should do the right thing also and not shoot the wrong ball or call a time out before that happens.
I don't see a lot of NASCAR drivers pulling over to let someone pass them, and those NBA and NFL players sure are jealous of who is holding the ball.
