Oh sure....let's add another power category for the cheaters to exploit.

While you're at it, how about a 1200 watt category, because my amp won't 
run more than that ?

There are lots of 500 watt amplifiers in the market now, for example the Elecraft KPA500 and the ones made by Acom and Ameritron. People like them because many of these amps are small and solid state. There's a pretty big difference between running 500 watts and the full legal limit. How about a medium power class category?
