How Unique?

The article states that this is a "unique practice" to UAE Pro-League clubs. But, I know that the Premier League has this rule too, Rule V.7.2: "during the period of the Temporary Transfer of his contract registration a Player shall not play against the Transferor Club;".
So, obviously this is not unique. But is it limited or widespread? Any experts on {football/soccer} transfer rules?
