I'm sure it would be better to have a permanent Rating Point system in place 
so that we can plan our participation and continually update our rankings. 
Perhaps the WRTC2006 system is a step towards that permanent system. <<

Simple! As I suggested before.

Have regional (continental) qualifying runs under the same rules. Top 10 or 
whatever will go to the big one - the WRTC. (Tesla Cup would be better contest 
to use, more fair rules.)

Go even further, specify weight of the equipment and antennas and let the 
contesters use their real abilities to DESIGN and OPERATE THEIR stations. 
This will eliminate garbage about who is the best according to this or that. 
The only fair way!
You know the rules and limitations, you wanna participate, go and show that 
you are worthy by outdoing others.

Ooops, I forgot, we are dealing with ham radio and sanity rules do not always 
apply. :-)
