Have you seen car races where drivers were given Hertz rentals to compete in? 
See who is better driver?
Technical sport is operating PLUS equipment. The better you master both, the 
better ham radio contester you are. Part of the contesting radio skill is 
mastering the station setup (design for performance), knowing propagation, 
operating and hanging in there untill the finall bell.
One of the skill tests is the famous KCDXC pile up contest in Dayton. How 
about K3ZO cleaning the clock of multitude of champs. Proof that we old Frats 
can still hold our own, regardless how many radios, and we don't cry for over 
something category.
F'get about it, it's OK, need no new categories!

More problem there is with "Italian 300W" and horrible clixes form some of 
them champs. Like garbage truck on a highway spilling the garbage on them 
nice Ferraris. Lets talk about that.
