The bureaucracy loves complexity. It loves many layers of licensing
and different rules for the different layers. It gives them something
to do and justifies their existence. 

An amateur license should be have one simple purpose:  Certifying that
the holder knows how to operate within the law and without causing
undue interference.  And that's all.  Every ham should know how to do
that and there is no need for various levels of competence.

There should be one amateur license. Pass the test and you're a ham,

Not holding my breath, however.
