Wouldn't it be nice if those recordings could become public, much like the 
current Cabrillo files?

Yes, I know it would require someone to provide a large amount of storage and 
access, but surely it can be done.

It would be cool to listen to them!"

This has happened before - W1UE's recordings from IARU 2013 are available, plus 
many educational NA Sprint recordings, not to mention individual operators' 
websites (K5ZD, etc.).  Lots of sharing happens across local clubs too.

But I suspect many Top-3 ops would consider posting their full CQWW recordings 
as giving away intellectual property which took many years to develop.   

If you have an edge, you want to maintain it for as long as possible.   Similar 
to why hedge fund managers don't like to disclose their short positions!
