Ken, you said "World Top 10", while Yuri said "top 5 in their respective 
categories". Big difference.

In your case, you are only going after the world SOAB HP entries. While Yuri 
would be going after all categories, including, for example, single band, 80 
meters, low-power, assisted.

I know there is a perception that the biggest problem is world SOAB HP. However, 
the law of unintended consequences would say that if you focus on world SOAB HP, 
the problem will only be pushed into another category.

Where do you draw the line ?
