I normally agree with Will, but in this case I don't share his rationale.
There are many types of competition -- sailboat racing and sports car
racing come to mind -- where the proliferation of categories encourages
participation.  Everyone still knows who won A Sports Racing....

But I would have trouble knowing just where to draw the line for an SO2R
category.  At least it ultimately relies on the ability of ONE human brain
to process the data...
