In theory yes and an AA or any shooter except C would need at least 2 and at most 3 one pointers to take them down a grade for the year/season.
I think that's where this system falls down, the only people who really suffer are the one's below but as Bri mentioned no-one knows how big this problem is, could only be 10 people in the whole of the UK.
The only way to do it fairly is to issue warning on first one and then take them out of any grade/comps for a year/season and regrade the next year. That way they do affect on anyone but themselves.
