The Comm Badge order would probably apply better for away missions, especially since Starfleet officers are rarely removed from their communicators in situations that DON'T involve hostile alien kidnappers and/or dampening fields to block communications.

But that one goes back all the way to Enterprise and they still haven't done it, so I imagine there would be a broader technical reason for requiring an active homing signal instead of just a biosign (like, the desire not to accidentally beam up both the person and the ground he's standing on).
