Not only that the latter would be more commonly known as results, but also from the point of view that TES is also a reflection of the judges' subjective evaluations namely GOE.

What is the aim of avoiding PCS for calculating out the cut line?
It's pretty obvious that even ISU admits that the PCS is unreliable score, very subjective and can be inflated or deflated by politics and etc.
