Anyway would be a good practice to enter all qualifying contests as M2 and
not MS.

If you will do M2 in WRTC why penalize M2 in the qualifying events?

I believe the qualifying logic still fits the new format because you qualify
as an individual, and then pick your teammate - thus putting more emphasis
on individual performance for qualification purposes.

I agree with you Luc.,  Wouldn't  it be coherent to raise  Wrtc2014 M/2
category weighting factor to 1 (instead of 0.8) allowing everybody to train
themselves in that category without losing points  ?
