IMHO there should not be any points given for transitions that make you miss the jump. First things first.

5. Just one turn into 1S, not 3S.
"7. difficult entrance with steps and very short set-up into 3F+2Lo+2Lo(tano arm), simple exit." -- Um, am I watching th wrong performance? I saw only a 2F, np combo, no Tano.
So my question is, what is the point of all these transitions into jumps if you don't follow through by doing the jump? Why would the CoP take it into its curious head to reward such a thing?
That you for that compilation. I intended to comment at the time, but the thread moved on before I got to it.

I think it is a flaw in the CoP to award irrelevant ornamentation over solid technique.
