Seems like the simpler route to go would have been to just limit people to one free action per turn, and let a minor convert to a free with cyber.  Or call it a non-action or something and keep it out of the economy if multiple nons- are allowed in a turn.  Or like D&D bonus actions, you don't get one unless an ability gives you one.  Feels like there's better options other than spend-and-refund. 
Best to take it out of the economy then.  Or I could see a DNI action pool category based on Logic/3, Logic/2, or granted by ware.

Introducing a new action type (free) or a DNI action pool would just increase the overall complexity of the rules, and not needed since it's already handed in a simpler way by the refund.

Taking it out of the action economy is not a good option either, since it would allow you to "do the thing", even if you suffer from a status that prevent you from taking any actions. At the very least, it would be a whole new issue to debate in lengths.

The current rule seems to work fine.
