It seems to me Ron, that the situation that exists already favors the first group.
Well, the second group already exists in at least one tradition (shodokan). I say if someone wants to introduce it somewhere else...go for it.

I believe judo has two ranking structures...one for kata, and one for randori.

I'm working on a longer piece with my thoughts on this topic...if and when I ever get it finished, I'll post it.
