What is the incentive to develop operator ability if every time
an innovation within the rules is segregated to a different
category?  Yeah, I'm going to invest mental energy developing
a competitive advantage in the hopes that later on it will
be banned or removed from use.  Why bother, then?

Great analogy.  Two hands, two ears, two radios.  Some boxers
have a well-developed sense of balance and use one hand for
dominant punching.  To make it fair, let's have boxers all tie
one hand behind their back - that way each boxer can use one
well-developed hand each, and "fairness" will prevail.  I mean, we
can't let an ambidextrous fighter in the ring with a left-hander,
now can we?
