Sorry rGirl - What you are describing is a perfect way to maintain the status quo. Keep the QR as it is; the SP as it is; and the LP with all it's freedoms to exist. It was just a concept to see how skaters given identical circumstances compare with each other.
By permitting skaters to utilize their best tricks such as a quad, it will become a Technical Competition which I believe is already in existence in the SP. If we stack the routines with tricks favoring a few skaters, then the purpose of the comparison concept is gone.
With that in mind forget the Compulsory Skate which was to determine how skaters can <strong>perform</strong> to the same music and with the same content of program. It was just an idea. It isn't under consideration by the ISU. It would be nothing more than when one goes to a chorus audition.
No one has to protect what is already part of the establishment which I seem to be reading. So I believe the consensus is to drop any discussion on comparing skaters at equal odds.
