A number of people in the SCA, myself included (as if that might make
a difference), have been making those suggestions for a number of years.

Well, yes and no.  There is a goodly number of things that the Crown
can do something about, but the award and title structures isn't one
of them.  Much of those elements of the SCA is enshrined in the
Corpora and By-Laws, which can only be changed by the Board of
Directors.  Who haven't seem very inclined to seriously consider
suggested changes, even when presented with solid evidence that the
suggest alternatives are more authentic.
