While one has to be careful to avoid category-bloat, consider how many
significant contests lump everyone together.

The last major one I can think of is SS.  Didn't it used to have a 1.5

reasonable amount of categorization, otherwise it will become effectively
what it was meant to improve upon - a top band domestic US test.
