You still get to make your attack(s) more safely, and still get the All Out Defense bonus against everyone else who didn't wait. If they all wait, back up and use a ranged weapon. If you have friends, opponents waiting for you will give them openings.
Competent choices from the opposition can make this work much less badly than you suggest, but if they want to counteract ATR they do necessarily put themselves on a very reactive footing, which certainly can be exploited.
I don't know any 3e, so there is no chance that I am talking about 3e rules by accident.
