I think it's important to remember what Steve's original question is as we all digress.
If springers arn't graded the same as PCPs why don't they have their own scoring like the open class has
I don't think we've answered that. We've debated why they can't have their own scoring, but what we are now saying is that we know we don't want piston scores to affect PCP grades (cos that leads to the ringing effect), but we want PCP scores to affect Piston placings.
I think that's easy to see why that raises an eyebrow. And I think either way my thoughts would be similar to either 1st or 2nd place person in the either of their boats. So if it's to be solved i think we need something that's objective in it's approach.
