Last WRTC, I learned from the selection criteria how to pave my road to TL.
I'm full committed with PW7T team, so I could use my M/2 efforts to compose
my selection final score and chose some specific events to do Single-Op.

Then, new selection criteria for WRTC2014 says M/2 worth less points than
M/S. Since WRTC operation would be similar to M/S style, just one signal on
the air, that makes sense.

New rules pop up and WRTC2014 will be a pure M/2 style event, but selection
criteria penalize M/2 efforts. That's not making sense anymore.

I know, that is my case only and that is not bothering me. But would be
great If selection criteria mimics WRTC operation style.
