Because you would ruin the stigma, of what makes Fenway one of the best parks in Major League Baseball. In other words, without the Green Monster, and what it does, Fenway would be just another ball park. If they did that ... then one of those bloop hits that just scrapes the wall and results in a double would be ruled a home run. I will grant you that a line drive that hits high on the wall would be a home run in another park, but the risk of awarding home runs to weakly hit balls that wouldn't be a home run in any park outweighs the loss of those hard-hit balls that end up only being singles or doubles.

What is the ruling when a baseball hits the yellow part and comes back in?

The ball must clear the fence or hit above the yellow line. If the ball hits the line and comes back into play then it is a live ball (assuming it wasnt interfered with by a fan) just like any other ball that hits off the wall. In stadiums like Chase Field in Arizona that have a line on their wall in centerfield, if the ball hits above that line then it is a homerun, below the line is just a hit off the wall. Same with Fenway Park in Boston and where the "Green Monster" meets the wall in centerfield
