I think a helpful analogy would be this: if someone is caught robbing your house, would you be ok if the police just said to the thief, "OK, give everything back, and then go away and don't come back!" Most people would expect some additional punishment for the thief. Similarly with Meza - he cheated, and he stole what was earned by others. DQ'ing him would amount to the race directors saying he had to give the awards back.
I don't think cheating at a marathon is a prosecutable crime. But the lack of any negative consequences for Meza beyond having his name removed from the record books would stick in the craws of many. That's why we see a strong drive in many people for some kind of public exposure at least.
It's 'craw' ... NOT 'CRAW'!
