I was talking to the floor who made this decision and I asked him what would he have done if player B had just reraised and A had turned his cards over.
He said he would have ruled it according to the room rules, which are he would have ruled player A's cards live, but he would not have been able to make any more aggressive action in the hand, i.e., he could only check and call.
He told me that he made the original decision based on the interests of the game.
