I dunno, Stefan.  Artistry is such a subjective thing, all wrapped around 
emotions and egos and such, that I really do not know.

However, that's why I put forth the question.  How could such a system be 
created, and who would maintain it? Would it foster an even more 
pronounced reluctance to enter A&S competitions then?

Savian's (I *think* it was Savian, please excuse me if it was indeed not) 
put forth a nice message about honor on the field and how it must needs 
be learned.  Would it not be the same for artisans?
