I agree this is an interesting question. Since I was a kid I felt it should be a HR if the play isn't completed in the field of play.
Naturally, I realize that's not the case.
Of course, my simplified standard would also implicate landing in the stands in foul territory, although I admit those plays being called outs never bothered me much.

I agree in foul balls being caught with the player ending up in the stands should be an out. With the premise being the ball is caught "out of bounds" and of course remains out of bounds even with the player in the stands.

With Jackson's catch the ball is caught in the field of play and ends up over the wall. In the words of Kenny Mayne in his best Spanish accent, home rrrrrun.
